My name is Cole Thompson and I live and work in the Inwood section of Manhattan.

If you live in the neighborhood you likely know me from the local history talks I co-host at the Indian Road Café on the first Tuesday of every month.

As a licensed real estate salesperson with the local firm New Heights Realty, I help newcomers get to know the Inwood I love and know so well.

I truly enjoy helping customers explore this gem of a neighborhood on the northern tip of Manhattan.

What’s not to love?

There’s the 196-acre Inwood Hill Park, the weekly farmer’s market, stunning art deco buildings, the historic Dyckman Farmhouse and so much more.

While there is practical information abound on this website, the primary focus lies in the history of the neighborhood.   On this site I’ve attempted to make history fun and I hope I’ve met with some success.

I can’t tell you the pride I feel when people I’ve never met stop me on the street to discuss or expound upon a piece of information they’ve discovered on

With that, on to the history…

If you are thinking of buying or selling an apartment in the area please drop me a line using the form below.  My work ethic is strong and my knowledge of and enthusiasm for the neighborhood is unsurpassed. (All inquiries will be kept confidential)
