(also known as the heights, da heightz, home of the haze, domincans'vill and like our parents say: Guashington Heights)
The neighborhood in uptown Manhattan- NY famously known for the large population of Dominicans. It goes from 157th street all the way up to Dyckman.

Used to be New York's crime capital back in the 50's through the late 70's and had alot of Irish, Jews, crackheads, prostitutes and in much more poverty. Not so much anymore though. However, you still see alot of Jews and rich white people hidden in the quiet neighborhoods nobody knows about.
"I went to Washington Heights yesterday and those Dominicans have so much fun!"

The neighborhood right above Harlem. Runs from 155 St to Dykman St in the upper Manhattan area. Home to the largest concentration of Dominicans in New York City. The most popular streets are 168 st, 181 st and Dykman. The women in this sea are said to be smoking hot yet conceited and usually go after drug dealers and gangbangers.
Bob: "I heard Washington Heights has some hot chicks."
Michael: "Well you might as well forget about pickin' one up, unless you have a car or sell drugs."

The best place to live if your dominican looking for a better oppornity. It is a very fun place to live. The only place that you can walk 3 miles and not get tired. Every body here is trying to have fun. You have empanadas on the main streets, Chimichurris on amsterdam, and platanos are cheaper than in other places. You have the bronx nearby, Nightclubs in Downtown,movies on 181st and other.
