55 Payson Avenue


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.

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. A confluence of diversity in both geography and ethnicity, Inwood is a unique neighborhood offering the serenity of green spaces and the babble of lively streets. Justin DiGiulio (May 2014)
