As a New York born Dominican that is fully into his culture I honestly have to say that the majority of the young people living in the heights are illiterate wastes of flesh, I will go out on a limb and say that most young people living in our city now of all backgrounds and race are POS. Everybody wants to attain things without hard work and most of them wants to party & bull**** all day with no responsibilities.

For the OP, just move if you haven't already...Washington Heights wont be changing.

I do like heading up there sometimes because there are some low key places, the crazed Dominican festival is a must see for the riot like behavior and walk with a drink in hand type atmosphere while live tipico bands are playing music on corners (experienced on audobon once and it was amazing, like a club on the streets)...but to live like that 24/7 is not a reality.

I moved here two months ago (around East Broadway Dominican Side) because I was told the area was getting better. Well, after a month of listening to loud music, men hanging on the street corner, smoking a joint outside (yep), drinking from paper bags (also in public) and making their women carry up their bags while they lounge and holler at other girls (REALLY not making that up, I've seen it more than once), I can't help but wonder when it will change
.


You should have come here before you moved and you would have heard many a chorus of "Don't move East of Broadway in Inwood."
It was a mess 10 years ago and it will be a mess 10 years from now.

Perhaps you should start trying to arrange other digs when you can.

As a Dominican born in DR, i can co-sign the above statement. Not only the young people but also some of the old school Dominicans who don't assimilate to the US culture (ie; speak english, become citizens, etc).

Washington Heights is like the 2nd DR; Chinatown is the 2nd Hong Kong. I would pick Chinatown to live. Less bull**** goes on in Chinatown in comparison to Da Heights.
