Johnstown, PA (a city historically with double incentive to get out of the valley), rather than "Heights," has Westmont, Southmont, and Belmont, and hinting at the reason you might not have thought of initially, Bon Air. And, presumably downmarket, Tire Hill. Unlike some of the places named earlier in the thread, they are all higher elevation.

There could be plenty more I can't think of or don't know about.
NJ has Englewood Cliffs, Cliffside Park.

There is also Carbon Cliff, IL - I once asked where the cliff was, and got laughed at.

We're also a fan of hills (16: East Hills, Middle Hill, Observatory Hill, Perry Hilltop, Spring Hill, Squirrel Hill, Summer Hill, Troy Hill, Upper Hill, Braddock Hills, Churchill, Forest Hills, Jefferson Hills, Pleasant Hills, Sewickley Hills, Penn Hills, Cubbage Hill) and Mountains (7: Mount Oliver, Mount Washington, Ridgemont, Mount Vernon, Dormont, Oakmont)
One of the etc being little Patterson Heights, in Beaver County. As far as hills, there's a section of Beaver Falls called "College Hill" (for Geneva College) that was once an independent city.

I can honestly say I have never given this much thought, but in the Twin Cities we have:

Suburbs:

Columbia Heights, Vadnais Heights, Inver Grove Heights, and Mendota Heights.

Neighborhoods:

Hayden Heights, Prosperity Heights, Arlington Heights, Steven Square-Loring Heights.

Only one of those (Stevens/Loring Heights) is within the city limits of Minneapolis, which makes some sense, since Minneapolis's entire west bank is generally flatter than the city of St. Paul, as well as Nordeast.

Don't know if there are any more that I'm missing?
