686 ACADEMY ST in Inwood


Quiet On the rise

As the northernmost neighborhood on Manhattan Island, Inwood is a desirable location for those that yearn for the feeling of suburban living, but can't stand the thought of leaving Manhattan.

With the Harlem River to the north and east, the Hudson River to the west, and Marble Hill directly north, Inwood is bound by water on three sides. As a result, many residents praise the neighborhood's scenic and isolated feel, away from the rush of the city, but not too much so.
