Where is Washington Heights from the MTV show?

We’ve profiled the cast from MTV’s upcoming new show Washington Heights, but after seeing the promos it’s apparent that we missed out on the main character: the actual place the show is about! In that vein I thought I’d put together a helpful post to answer the inevitable question everyone watching the show not from New York City will be asking — Where is Washington Heights?

While one new show via MTV from West Virginia featuring 9 youth has drawn the ire of a Senator ( Buckwild ), another show coming to the same network focusing on a separate group of 9 young Americans is flying under the radar. The show is called Washington Heights and we’re here to introduce you to the cast. Check out the trailer as well as cast bios and photos for the show premiering January 9.
