Does it encompass all of the upper part of Washington Heights or just the part west of Broadway? If it's just the part west of Broadway, is there a noticeable difference compared to east of Broadway? I'm trying to get a sense of the area in the W. 180s east of Broadway.

Just the part west of Broadway - from about West 175th up to the Cloisters. Yes there is a noticeable difference.

I would just mention that the heart of Hudson Heights is really Fort Washington, Cabrini and Pinehurst as they run north of 181 up a hill that somewhat isolates the neighborhood. While the area south of the bridge and west of Broadway is also considered HH, it really has a different feel as it's own neighborhood, as it is more residential with few stores, and Jay Hood park as a nice feature. It also seems to be more populated with people/students who work at the Columbia Presbyterian hospital. Similarly, Bennett Ave is usually included in the HH zone but it really is a very distinct neighborhood unto itself as the street runs parallel to Fort Washington Ave but is about 70 feet below running along the bottom of a cliff. It also has a very strong Jewish orthodox community there and Broadway in the area seems to be the hot spot for future development projects. I have often felt this area should be referred to as the Bennett Valley, as east of Broadway is another 70 foot incline up to Wadsworth Ave.

Hudson Heights is only West of Broadway. Above 181st Street it really has a specific feel to it, like it's isolated from the rest of Manhattan. Below 181st it has a more "Wash Heights" feel to it, but it's still a lot wealthier than anything east of Broadway
