Hudson Heights

Strolling around Hudson View Gardens buildings, love the Tudor style architecture in the Hudson Heights, NYC neighborhood. A lot of the buildings were designed by George F. Pelham and were built from 1923-1925. At that time Hudson View Gardens was the largest housing cooperative in New York and one of the earliest primarily for the middle class. It is now listed on the National Register of Historical Places.

Interestingly other surrounding buildings has Art Deco styled features which gives the neighborhood a more eclectic mix beyond the different nationalities that live here.

Hudson Heights is also home to the highest natural point in Manhattan at Bennett Park, which is where the Continental Army delayed the advance of British troops in 1776.
