Last Saturday afternoon, we left our cozy apartment in Morningside Heights to explore Inwood, an up-and-coming neighborhood at the very top of Manhattan, because we're considering moving there. We even looked at a couple of apartments, including one with six closets (a treasure trove in New York City).
It's a very pleasant area, with several parks and schools, plus a Revolutionary War fort and The Cloisters (the Met's medieval art collection which is housed in a lovely monastery replica), and has a wonderfully diverse population. I was so excited to see this garden -- and these chinodoxia, or Glories of the Snow, poking out of the ivy. My first flower-sighting of the year. Maybe it was a sign!
When you've moved, how have you decided where to look?
