Living in Inwood has been a very exciting and thrilling experience. With everything being in walking distance, there is almost no way you could miss out on any fun. Whether its going hiking in Inwood Park or dancing the night away in some of their famous lounges, there is always something to do here. Not to mention that if anything "crazy" were to happen to you, the hospital is also right there! Inwood is filled with a lot of diversity; you can always get a taste of different cultures just by taking a walk through Broadway. The only down side to living here was finding parking. But that's only if you don't mind paying for the public garages.

I like the neighborhood because the air is much cleaner and the environment is greener and fresher than usual.Unfortunately there is a lot of trash in the streets and dog shit. The street I live in seems to be the worst horizontal street and the building I live seems to be not better, compared to the adjacent streets with green trees and plants in front of the buildings. The neighborhood is quiet the only problem with noise is the people living in our building, our neighbor and the people driving their motor cycles on the highway the what they consider as cool way. Given the shopping options and restaurant I am not satisfied, as there is not much diversity. I miss a good bakery with brown to cereal bread and a cute taco place which provides quick tacos. Just good tacos, which are affordable. The prices for newly opened restaurants are too high.
It’s actually a pretty good neighborhood, it has a couple parks where you could sit and relax and just watch people pass by or go for a quick jog or even walk you dog. It’s pretty dense with Hispanic culture but that’s what keeps this area lively. The further up you go passed 215 till you hit the bridge the less interesting and dull it gets since there’s not much going on over there I wish I get to see that area get more businesses that people would enjoy and hold events to get that area more recognition.
