The New Amsterdam is a 29-unit condominium building offering video intercom, laundry on every floor, two outdoor spaces and an enormous roof deck with panoramic views of the city. The surrounding Washington Heights area is one of the last under-developed neighborhoods in Upper Manhattan. With several new developments upcoming and proximity to venerable institutions such as Yeshiva University, New York-Presbyterian Hospital and University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, the area is poised for an amazing resurgence. Green space surrounds the neighborhood with huge parks lining both the Hudson and Harlem rivers, including adjacent Highbridge Park which is slated for a multimillion-dollar restoration. The nearby NJ Transit bus terminal hub and access to A/C and 1 trains provide effortless public transportation, while the George Washington Bridge, FDR and Cross-Bronx Expressway provide easy travel for motorists.
