Love this place. I visited this park a few years ago and the area has definitely changed. Lots of smaller (hipsterish) cafes and stores have been opening. Parking is just as tough though, since there are tons of apartment buildings. I was lucky enough to snag a spot about a block away from the park's entrance point at 218th Street... More

At first I felt kind of like it was't a very safe area, then I waited a few minutes and started to see people running, walking their dogs, and laying around. It is a photographers paradise (wildlife photographer). A must place to visit, a hidden forest in Manhattan.

I have years visiting this park and many memories that accompany those visits. But I always remember coming here on school trips and past the swing sets, the slides and the baseball fields there are quiet paths. Through these paths my elementary school teachers would always point out the caves(that are still there today) where the Native Americans use to... More

Not very many people go up to this idyllic spot - on the Northern Tip of Manhattan Island. The hiking trails give you a chance to completely escape from the Urban Blur and the elevated views of Spuyten Duyvel and the Hudson are not to be believed. Great in all Seasons!

March and April are great months to explore Inwood park--all the bulbs and trees are blooming. There are plenty of paved walkways at the base of the park and jogging trails that go higher into the hills that overlook the Harlem River and the Henry Hudson Bridge. There are many baseball diamonds and lots of amateur games of all ages... More

Sure, Central Park is great. I love it just like every other new yorker, but if you are a tourist and want to see the cool stuff that all of the tourist DON'T flock to, I would suggest going to see this park. It's at the very top of Manhattan and right along the water. There are great paths that... More
