Inwood Hill Park is truly one of the most beautiful spaces in all of the U.S.A! It doesn't feel like you are in the biggest city in North America. You feel like you have stepped Back in time, to how New York was before the Europeans first arrived. It's wonderful that there are no modern developments here, it's peaceful and beautiful. Sadly, most New Yorkers have no idea where Inwood, or even believe that it is part of Manhattan, but it is, very much a part of New York..

There’s a unique reward for trekking to the northernmost corner of Manhattan, where you’ll find enormous trees in the island’s last virgin forest. Much of the park has never been developed; due to its comparatively remote location, the land remained rural up until its 1916 purchase by the Parks Department, who decided to leave Inwood as natural as possible. As a result, the area remains very similar to the way the island was 500 years ago.
