Inwood is physically bounded by the Harlem River to the north and east, and the Hudson River to the west. It extends southward to Fort Tryon Park and alternatively Dyckman Street or Fairview Avenue further south, depending on the source. Inwood is mostly covered by the 10034 postal ZIP code.
Notably, while Inwood is the northernmost neighborhood on the island of Manhattan, it is not the northernmost neighborhood of the entire borough of Manhattan. That distinction is held by Marble Hill, a Manhattan neighborhood situated just north of Inwood, on what is properly the North American mainland bordering the Bronx. (Marble Hill was isolated from Inwood and the rest of Manhattan in 1895 when the route of the Harlem River was altered by the construction of the Harlem River Ship Canal.)
Because of its water boundary on three sides, the hilly geography, and the limited local street connections (only Broadway and Fort George Hill connect to the rest of the Manhattan street grid), the neighborhood can feel somewhat physically detached from the rest of the borough. The W.P.A. Guide to New York City, published in the 1930’s, described Inwood as: rivers and hills insulate a suburban community that is as separate an entity as any in Manhattan.
Inwood’s main local thoroughfare is Broadway, which is also designated US 9 at this point. Highway access to the area is via the Henry Hudson Parkway to the west, the Harlem River Drive/FDR Drive to the southeast (both exiting at Dyckman Street) and the Major Deegan Expressway over the Harlem River, which exits to the east at the University Heights Bridge, along 207th Street / Fordham Road. Inwood’s main commercial shopping streets are Broadway, Dyckman Street and West 207th St. The majority of neighborhood residents commute via subway using either the A Train at the 207th Street or Dyckman Street IND stations along Broadway or the elevated IRT 1 Train stations at Dyckman Street, 207th Street, or 215th Street along Tenth Avenue. The station at 207th Street and Broadway has been the northernmost terminus for the A train since it opened in 1932 and was renovated in 1999 to be ADA compliant.
