9. Inwood Hill Park

In the 17th century, the Lenape Native American tribes inhabited the area where Inwood Hill Park is today, using the park’s rock caves as seasonal living quarters, where they could fish and harvest shellfish from the nearby river. They stayed in the area until 1643, when they were attacked by Mohawks, forcing them to leave behind various items, including pottery, weapons and tools. The caves were later found to contain remains of old campfires and artifacts.
