A Tale of Two Inwoods

A Tale of Two Inwoods

I received a call, a couple of weeks back, from none other than Broker, Jane Peters, of Los Angeles, California. Jane Peters, Connecting you to the L.A. real estate scene (Power Brokers Int'l)

She potentially wanted to refer out the sale of an Inwood co-op.

"Inwood - oh, sure. Sunrise to Peninsula...one of the Five Towns," I immediately responded.

As a long-term Long Island resident, it was the only Inwood that came to mind. Long story short, I was wrong as it turned out to be about Inwood - the northernmost neighborhood on the island of Manhattan.

Now, what are the chances?

A two hour commute made me the wrong agent for the job. I did, however, recommend someone who used to be active here and would almost definitely be familiar with the community.

Inwood - Nassau County, Long Island

 

The Five Towns are an informal grouping of villages on the South Shore of western Long Island. They are part of Nassau County, in the Town of Hempstead and they consist of Lawrence, Cedarhurst, Woodmere, Hewlett, and Inwood.

The name caught on way back in the 1930's when individual charities banded together to form one that serviced all the areas.

Some exclusive private communities exist along the water, but there are also plenty of affordable homes, co-ops and apartment rentals.

 

Inwood, Manhattan

Compared with the rest of Manhattan, Inwood's prices are very affordable. A two bedroom co-op will run you a reasonable $350,000 - $400,000. 

The area is home to industry and commerce but also to Inwood Hill Park and newly opened Muscota Marsh. Some feel it is destined to be the "next big thing."

The neighborhood is found way up in the 200 streets. Most residents commute by subway (A or 1 train.) Broadway is its main thoroughfare. It's bounded by Harlem and Hudson Rivers and Dyckman Street.
