Inwood (Hempstead, New York)

Inwood (Hempstead, New York)
Beginnings: Cheek-by-jowl today with Kennedy International Airport, Inwood once was virgin forest rimmed by extensive marshes reaching west into Jamaica Bay. Tradition says Indians often gathered there because it was a cornucopia of oysters, clams and mussels, for making happy palates and wampum. The 1800s brought a few farming and fishing families descended from early Hempstead Town settlers, with names such as Cornell, Sprague, Doughty, Johnson, Rhinehart and Smith.
