"A distinct entity with winding roads, hilly rises, and nearly detached road gridding, Inwood is nearly surrounded by water. Not to be confused with the similar Inwood of Nassau County, the tiptop neighborhood of the island Manhattan is bordered by the Harlem River in the North and East, the Hudson to the West, and the land touching down in Fort Tryon Park and Dyckman. Water and nature pervade the edges and the inner neighborhood, creating a suburban ‘au natural’ feel with an insistently beating city heart. Residentially, older five-eight story prewar apartment buildings dominate the landscape with little new construction on the horizon. Historically an Irish and Jewish neighborhood, early 21st century Inwood has shifted its demographic to a largely Dominican population. A bustling year-round farmer’s market is a community-building environment that emphasizes locale. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s medieval art oasis, ‘The Cloisters’, was built using ancient building parts bought from Europe and assembled in Inwood. Many parks, including Inwood Hill Park and Columbia University’s athletic fields, create an arena for runners, bikers, and families to enjoy the outside. One can feel the thumping of former resident and NBA basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar running through the tree-studded roads. The MTA’s A and 1 connect into the central thoroughfare of Broadway. Major bridges include: Henry Hudson Parkway, the Harlem River Drive, Alexander Hamilton Bridge, and the University Heights Bridge. Inwood buses M100, Bx12, Bx12 SBS, and Bx20 are local, with the BxM1 express. Metro-North is located near the Broadway Bridge." By: Meir Areman

    I really like Inwood. The general feel of the area is so ingrained in my childhood that it just gives me this sense of warm nostalgia everytime I am there.
