Inwood Hill Park, Crown Jewel of Manhattan

Sitting atop Manhattan where the Hudson River meets the Spuyten Duyvil Creek and the Henry Hudson Bridge carries travelers upstate and out of the city is Inwood Hill Park. It’s the literal and figurative crown jewel of Gotham, both a true community gathering space with an abundance of space for sports and picnicking as well as a secluded natural getaway that offers hikers, thinkers, photographers, and the like miles of forested, labyrinthian trails. In fact, it is the site of New York City’s last natural forest. Inwood Hill serves as Henrietta’s local stomping grounds – she gets lost, and found, there on a near-daily basis and sometimes stops in to watch a few innings of Puerto Rican club baseball!
