Cows on Inwood Hill

Inwood Hill is a 196-acre park located on the northern tip of Manhattan. The words “wild” and “untamed” are often used to describe the meandering trails, caves, cliffs and otherworldly geological formations that together make Inwood Hill so unique.
Glenn Curtiss

On May 29th, 2010 the children of Inwood gathered in Isham Park to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Glenn "The Birdman" Curtiss' historic flight from Albany to New York City. He landed right here in Isham Park.

There is a large one down the Harlem only a little way from Inwood with handsomer boats, perhaps, or more pretentious ones that are to be seen along the little cove, but what they lack is Inwood, a perfect background, majestic and colorful.”


215th Street Stairs

With new restaurants moving into the neighborhood on a regular basis, the Inwood dining scene gets better every day. Whether you are starting your day off with a fresh cup of coffee from the Indian Road Cafe or ending your night with a brick oven pizza from Grandpa's, Inwood has something for every taste and budget.

The church, he announced, would be named the Church of the Good Shepherd.
