Hudson Heights is a residential neighborhood in the hills of Manhattan schist that rise on the West Side of Upper Manhattan above the I-95 George Washington Bridge.
This rebranded section of Washington Heights is the gateway to Fort Tryon Park and the Met Cloisters medieval art and architecture museum.
The highest natural point in Manhattan is marked with a plaque in Bennett Park. In 1776, during the U.S. Revolutionary War, George Washington used it as a camp called Fort Washington.
The neighborhood is served by the NYPD 34th Precinct and FDNY Engine Co. 93/Ladder Co. 45/Battalion 13.
Hudson Heights was a Jewish neighborhood, has become Hispanic, and is gentrifying.
