About Inwood Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

What’s it like to live on top? Inwood residents might have some idea. The neighborhood inhabits the very tip of Manhattan and sports a 196-acre hilly park with plentiful city views. Called Manhattan’s last affordable neighborhood by the New York Times, Inwood is truly an escape from the grind of city life. Though while the neighborhood has remained exempt from glossy new developments, it is still very connected to the rest of Manhattan with typical commute times to midtown clocking in at about 20 minutes. Charming shopping districts, woodsy paths, and authentic Latin American cuisines are other draws. The neighborhood is quiet, but far from boring, with a toned down but typical-Manhattan liveliness.
