Want Windsor Terrace but are priced out? According to the New York Times, which ran a story recently about buyers heading back to Manhattan because they're finding properties too expensive in Brooklyn, you might fare better in Washington Heights instead.

Here, our selection of this weekend's open houses in the area. (Before you head out, read our interview with actor Ty Jones, producing artistic director of the Classical Theatre of Harlem, who's a fan of the neighborhood.)
