Fort George has a below average violent crime rate and a low property crime rate for New York City.


Fort George is one of the hilliest neighborhoods in Manhattan, rising steeply up from the Hudson River (which is why it's sometimes referred to as Hudson Heights). This is a predominantly residential area home to large Jewish and Hispanic populations. Cheap housing and an influx of new restaurants and retail shops are bringing in new residents fleeing more expensive parts of the city.

Fort George is bordered on the north by Inwood, on the east by the Harlem River, on the south by Washington Heights, and on the west by the Hudson River.
