Western Washington Heights north of 168th and definitely north of 181st on top of the hill are gorgeous, safe, good neighborhoods to me. My favorite part of uptown north of UWS and UES. I wish I had money when I first learned about these areas, I would have bought years ago. Now the buy in is like $500k. R I P Manhattan real estate.

I just looked into my favorite neighborhood building 2 blocks Wesr, 1185 Park Avenue (like the Apthorp but for Jews.)
OY: gorgeous penthouse $16 Million. Dream on.

Walking these streets of Payson, Seaman, Cooper, etc. is so quiet that you can hear a pin drop. There's literally no activity in Inwood, west of broadway at night. East of Broadway is super noisy, though.

The only negative part about being up here is that the train ride takes so long, and that only the A and 1 trains stop by here. Both trains make local stops after hours, making your commute back home to over an hour.
Over an hour from the Village?

I used to work with a guy who lived in Inwood off the A train and he said his train ride was 45 mins. I live in Far Rock and my train ride is 53 mins to Tribeca. Manhattan is 12 miles long.

That 125th to 59th can be deceptive at times haha

Tribeca is the creepiest neighborhood in ALL of Manhattan. If there was to be an urban version of Halloween it would have to take place there.

I had no idea it was less than 1 hour from Far Rock to Manhattan

But that must only be when the express is running
