Travel Tips from people who've been to Washington Heights
Home sweet home, at least for the moment!  This neighborhood made the book "World's most dangerous places" in the early 1990s when we led the city in murders.  Then Giuliani time came, and I got stopped by cops every night because I was the wrong color for the neighborhood, being a long haired white guy.  They assumed i was buying drugs, and not living there...  Now, it is one of the nicest neighborhoods in the city, great restaurants that are inexpensive, like El Malecon, El Presidente, and Galicia among others, and no danger at all walking around the streets anytime of night.  Heck, the Berlin Philharmonic even played a concert in the neighborhood this past year in Reverend Ike's Church :)
Good tip?
