A stone wall entrance showcasing mature landscaping and hardwood trees brings area residents to a welcome respite from the daily grind. Isham Park, a 20-acre space that is composed of land donated to the city by various members of the Isham family is accessed right from Broadway. A yelp.com contributor described it as “a nice little park in a nice little neighborhood,” and marveled how she can walk out of her apartment door and see the park rather than buildings like in most other streets in New York. The park offers walking trails, gardens, outcroppings of Inwood marble, and Nature Adventures for Kids events.
