Northern tip of the Island. The closest New Yorkers will ever get to upstate and still not find parking. Many visitors will find themselves getting lost on an upward climb to a medieval castle called, The Cloisters. They will write a postcard to their mother, sigh, and come back down to where the people live. Here, home is so much more. Inwood offers panoramic views of the Hudson and Harlem Rivers, an amazing annual (although softly illegal) Fourth of July fireworks show, a historic farmhouse, farm-to-table cooking, craft beer, the best reading spots in New York City, and a friendly and diverse community well-versed in the uptown art of waiting for the A train.
