INWOOD, NY — This Friday, we took the PIX11 Morning Show on the road!
We went up to Fort Tryon Park in Manhattan to enjoy the music, culture, and arts of zip code 10040.
Inwood is known for its green gardens, young families, and local Latin flavor. Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is from the surrounding area, as is NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Fort Tryon Park is also home to The Cloisters museum, a real, Medieval castle right in the heart of the city that houses more than 2,000 works of art.
The PIX11 Morning News team took bachata lessons, surprised two moms from the crowd with a special Mother’s Day makeover and more!
Below are some segments from the show:
Neighborhood eats: We talked Jairo de la Paz, co-owner of the Michelin recommended restaurant Marcha Cocina, about the perfect Mother`s Day brunch ideas.
Mother's Day makeover: With the holiday around the corner, PIX11 offered one local mother a makeover she wouldn`t soon forget.
Bachata: PIX11 learns the popular Upper Manhattan dance that originates from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean islands.
Thanks for spending your morning with New York's Very Own PIX11!
