But wait, there's more: https://gothamist.com/news/inwood-re...ington-heights

Quite honestly don't see Inwood in any danger of becoming the next "Williamsburg" or something. It is just too GD far and transit options while good for what they are, still often involve more effort that living in other highly desirable parts of city.

Probably could commute from areas of North Shore, East Shore and Mid-Island areas of Staten Island faster.

This being said yes, something is bound to happen redevelopment wise; but if city continues its war against motor vehicles and driving it will take some of gloss of living way up there.

All those developments along the A line in Manhattan put a lot of pressure in inwood.
The Hudson yards, Columbia University expansion, Manhattan West, Riverside Center, and now even Facebook is rumored to occupy the old USPS building on the west side of 34th ST. if you live in inwood the train is always empty in the morning. a solid 30-40 minutes to midtown is an average commute. but you can push it to 34th street if you want. Inwood has lots of parks, the cloisters, some good restaurants, the river and even a sailing school and kayak club.
lots of green and is not dangerous. i would say is noisy but not dangerous.


West Harlem is already feeling the fire from all that future development down the line.

living in inwood is not that crazy if you work above 34th street on the A train.

forget about the 1 train.

1 train is fine if you're living more than 5 minutes closer to a 1 train stop than an A train stop and you're headed to Columbus Circle on up.
