Occupying Northern Manhattan are two major neighborhoods:    Washington Heights and Inwood.  Youíll find very few modern buildings in this area.  Most buildings are 6 to 12 story apartment houses which were built in the 1920ís and 1930ís.  Many are large with high ceilings and offer views of the Hudson River or Harlem River Valley .  Co-ops and rentals are numerous.  There are also a moderate number of one and two-family homes.   

High Bridge , Fort Washington and Inwood Parks are good for walking and offer superb views of the Hudson and Harlem Rivers .  This is also home to the magnificent Cloisters, an abbey shipped brick-by-brick from Europe and devoted to medieval life and art.  It was donated by the Rockefeller family and can be found in Fort Tryon Park , has a magnificent view and is a perfect spot for picnics. 

Washington Heights is home to the Museum of the American Indian, The Hispanic Society of America and the American Academy of Arts and Letters.  One of the cities largest teaching hospitals, Columbia Presbyterian, dominates the area.  In addition to the local convenience stores, Dykman Avenue , from 181st to 207th Streets, offers major shopping.  .
