Washington Heights

Washington Heights is an early 20th century streetcar suburb that was developed for the African American middle class.  It has a rich collection of Craftsman style bungalows, as well as a rare neighborhood grocery store on Booker Avenue.  

Washington Heights is starting to change as new homes and business are appearing in the neighborhood.  The challenge for the preservationist is to retain important historic streetscapes and individually distinctive buildings.
