Located to the north of Manhattan is the picturesque, hilly, and working-class neighborhood of Fort George. It is named after the last fort of its kind built in 1776 at the corner of Audubon Avenue and 192nd Street. Fort George is rich in history and culturally diverse. This region is packed with brick buildings built in the early 1900s as well as new modern buildings on the rise. Stretching north from West 181st street to Dyckman Street, and west from Broadway to the Harlem River, Fort George is notorious for how remarkably hilly its streets are. The hilly streets give residents breathtaking views of the Hudson and surrounding neighborhoods.
Fort George is great for all ages but especially for families looking for quiet streets with an “at-home” feel. The neighborhood is mostly stacked on a ridge where views are impressive, and some buildings are even put on stilts or are curved to fit the winding shapes of the street. Furthermore, Fort George is in a great location where it is roughly only thirty minutes to Wall Street, Rockefeller Center, and Jersey City. Walking along the streets, it’s common to see an extensive mix of restaurants and cafés. The future is looking bright for Fort George as it continues to build more trendy and modern buildings.
