"Cloister Park" is newest Upper Manhattan name bestowed on the neighborhood by a real estate agent.

UPPER MANHATTAN — A broker’s decision to rename a stretch of Manhattan that sits at the intersection of Washington Heights and Inwood has left some residents scratching their heads.
Inwood celebrates St. Patrick's Day today by welcoming The Liffy II Bar back into the fold. The pub holds yearly St. Patrick's Day celebrations replete with corned beef and hash feasts.
Liffy II had closed earlier this year, because of charges that they were selling alcohol to minors repeatedly over the course of a one-month police investigation. Keenan's, another Irish pub further south on Broadway in Inwood, also closed last November after police raided the bar finding cocaine in the basement and dealer's apartment. Police say the bar owners may have had knowledge of the dealing on site.
The closure of the two locations had reduced Inwood's Irish pub options in half, or 40 percent if you count the Irish Brigade Pub on Broadway, beneath Dyckman, along with Piper's Kilt and Patrick's Bar.
