|While New York City hustled and bustled it way to one of the busiest cities in the world,|
its northern neighborhoods, such as Inwood, remained rural up until the first decades of the 20th century.
That changed in the 1930s. The A train reached 207th Street, and the Henry Hudson Bridge opened a new path to the Bronx.
Working New Yorkers found affordable housing and a little class in the new apartment buildings of Inwood,
most built in the Art Deco style.
The morning sun illuminated the top floors of this exemplar Deco building on Cooper Street.
Down the street and off to the right is The Cloisters, built in the 1930s, too, in Inwood's moment in the sun.
