Hudson Heights

Hudson Heights, which stretches roughly from 181st to 193rd Street between Broadway and the river, is a manufactured name created by brokers and co-op owners in the mid-nineties to psychologically distance the area from the rest of Washington Heights. While prices have gone up in recent years, the cost of a one-bedroom co-op ($130,000-$275,000) is still about half that of one on the Upper West Side. New, higher-end commercial development has also crept in, but the biggest boon to the area is the $84 million ferry-terminal project, which will open in stages over the next three years. — ROB TURNER
