Washington Heights, Manhattan

Concourse, the Bronx

Hey, who wouldn’t want to be close to the good ol’ Yankee Stadium?

This historic district will offer you affordable apartments with spacious rooms in its prewar buildings (equipped with modern elevators, don’t worry!) The lack of skyscrapers give life to plenty of fresh air and light to stream throughout the streets as its folks enjoy a game of Dominoes and their kids cycle around freely.

With an abundance of restaurants, bars and a movieplex, you can check out the Harlem night scene as it’s a short bike ride away.
