Marble Hill and Inwood Hill Park Professional Review and Guide

"Is there a place in Manhattan that isn’t in Manhattan? Does that question even make sense? Yes and yes. The northernmost part of Manhattan, Marble Hill, is physically in the Bronx. Walking around here, you’re not on the island of Manhattan, but you’re still in the borough of Manhattan. Marble Hill was severed from the island and “sewed on” to the Bronx in 1895 as part of a public-works project related to water traffic. So while this area seems like it should be “South Riverdale” in the Bronx, it is indeed Manhattan.

After taking in the sights of Marble Hill, cross the Broadway Bridge and wander around Inwood, the section of Manhattan (island) that is farthest north. The highlight here is the astonishing natural beauty of large Inwood Hill Park. Don’t think that if you’ve seen one big urban park, you’ve seen them all. Much of Inwood Hill is natural—unlike New York City’s many planned and human-made parks—and thus more amazing."
