4. Inwood Hill Park is Largely Non-Landscaped

Despite appearing very natural in some areas, Central Park is entirely landscaped and planned. By contrast, Inwood Hill Park is largely natural, as evidenced by its caves and ridges. Sitting on a high ridge, elevated 200 feet above the Hudson River, the green space boasts a varied and geologically diverse land, consisting of marble, schist and limestone. In many areas, it is also scoured by shifting glaciers, which left behind unique formations, including the largest glacial porthole in the city.
