Uptown is made up of 2 unique neighborhoods in northern Manhattan, Inwood and Washington Heights. Washington Heights encompasses the area from 145th street to 200th street and Inwood includes all of Manhattan north of 200th street. For people looking for vacation rentals in a less busy part of Manhattan, this is a good choice since the population density of northern Manhattan is less than that of central Manhattan. Furthermore, both Washington Heights and Inwood have their own parks, Fort Tryon Park and Inwood Hill Park respectively.
Fort Tryon Park features The Cloisters, which is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Cloisters features an impressive collection of mediaeval art. Inwood Hill Park is the last naturally forested area in Manhattan and remains largely non-landscaped compared to other parks in the city.
The uptown neighborhood also features some entertainment and museums located right alongside the various vacation rentals. The Audubon Ballroom, located in Washington Heights, is home to the Harlem Heights Historical Society which includes a museum in honor of Malcolm X. The Dyckman Farm House, built in 1784, is what remains of the farming operations that went on in northern Manhattan in the 18th and 19th centuries. This house has been a city museum since 1916.
With Uptown being at the very northern tip of Manhattan vacation rentals in this area are priced more reasonably then vacation rentals in midtown. Main tourist areas remain easily accessible due to express subway service and easy access to 2 highways leading downtown.
