Fort George

Near park On the rise

Named for a Revolutionary War era fortification, Fort George is truly an epitome of American independence.

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. 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. Justin DiGiulio (May 2014)
