This northernmost Manhattan neighborhood’s pastoral scenery will surprise you.
Occupying the tip-top of Manhattan, Inwood is a residential neighborhood that feels far removed from the rest of the island’s fast-paced way of life. Outside of its bustling core, this neighborhood’s lushly forested park and local salt marsh resonate with low-key crowds that prefer a pastoral stroll rather than a power walk. Better still, Inwood’s distance doesn't detract from its rich diversity–the neighborhood is home to a distinct Dominican community.
Inwood is within Manhattan and bordered by Morris Heights, Marble Hill, The Bronx, Spuyten Duyvil, Riverdale, Kingsbridge, University Heights, Fordham, and Washington Heights
