Inwood, Manhattan

Inwood is the neighborhood at the northern end of Manhattan. It is bounded by Dyckman Street, the Harlem River[?], the Harlem Ship Canal[?], and the Hudson River.

Inwood is a largely residential neighborhood, consisting mostly of apartment houses and parkland. It also houses a subway yard and Columbia University's football stadium.

Inwood Hill Park, on the Hudson River, is a largely wooded city park that contains caves that were used by the Lenape before Europeans arrived, and the last salt marsh[?] in Manhattan. Birdwatchers come to the park to see waterbirds, raptors, and a wide variety of migratory birds.
