WASHINGTON HEIGHTS

Washington Heights small logo
'Washington Heights' follows a group of best friends living, working and playing in the diverse New York City neighborhood of Washington Heights. Having grown up just blocks away from each other, they all share special bonds that feel more like family than friends. While fiercely proud of their community, they sometimes struggle to push past the confines of their upbringing in order to carve out bright futures for themselves. And despite obstacles that threaten to stand in the way of their dreams (aspiring fashion designer, professional baseball, hip-hop artist, poet), they always have each other's backs.

'Washington Heights' is ultimately a celebration of friendship, neighborhood pride and making your way in life while having a good time along the way.
