'''Upper Manhattan''' is a large, relatively under-visited area of [[Manhattan ]] that ranges from 125th Street to Inwood Hill Park on the west and from about 96th Street northward (the island of Manhattan tapers off unevenly on the east) on the east. The area includes the well-known neighborhood of '''Harlem''', recognized globally as a center of African-American culture and business. Other areas of interest include the neighborhoods of '''Washington Heights''', a center of Dominican culture in New York and the home of ''The Cloisters'' museum and the huge ''Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center''; and '''Inwood''', the home of the last remains of the marshes and forests that once covered the island.
