Inwood: So Far North, It’s Cheap

You’ve heard it before: There are deals to be had in Inwood, a neighborhood that sits on the northernmost tip of Manhattan. But are there really? If a co-op apartment is what you’re after, you might find a deal this weekend. There are plenty of them here, especially two-bedrooms. Many are in buildings that wouldn’t be considered white glove in tonier sections of the city but do offer substantive (read practical) extras like children’s play spaces and garages, and they are also friendly to pets and people without fantastically large reserves of cash. The trade-off is that you’ll feel like you’re worlds away from everything, or at least a decent grocery store, though greenmarkets and CSAs (membership groups that support nearby farms from which they purchase produce) abound. And of course, there’s Inwood Hill Park, Isham Park, and Fort Tryon Park, all of which more than make up for the fact that you’re so far from that other, more central green space due south. —S.
