Inwood Snapshots

img_0852.jpgI visited my friend Jack on Saturday, who is one of the last Armenian Americans in a remote corner of Manhattan that was once bustling with a few hundred Armenians who settled there in the 1930s.

The neighborhood has been dominated by Dominicans since the 1980s, but today it is experiencing another shift as artists and yuppies move in to snap up cheap apartments in a rather pastoral setting (it is surrounded by three parks and two rivers–the Harlem & East Rivers). Even nestled in so much nature, Inwood still keeps its urban flavor.
