One view of many from Morningside Park
One view of many from Morningside Park

Located on the upper west side of Manhattan is this wonderful 29.88 acres of park which stretches from Cathedral Parkway at W. 110th Street to W. 123rd Street. Its eastern and western borders are Morningside Drive and Morningside Avenue. The name of this park and the community it finds itself in is so named for the cliff which separates Morningside Heights from Harlem. Yours truly has walked along the streets of this area during a few mornings and as the name suggests it’s a sunny and bright walk to be enjoyed by all. Try it in the crisp becoming days of Autumn and in the chilly days of Winter and you’ll find the walks about and within to be quite pleasant. If you look around you can see vestiges of the battles fought here during the revolutionary war. The cliff and its surrounding area are very fort-like.

Those two great minds responsible for our Prospect Park and Central Park amongst others, Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted also had their hand in the design of this park. ‘and what an achievement. What with great sights nearby such as the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, General Grant National Memorial, Riverside Church and Columbia University to the west plus the wonders of Central Park to the south east, one can’t wrong with a walk through Morningside Park on any day of any season.

Taking place within the park are year-round activities for folks of all ages. How’s ’bout visiting the Friends of Morningside Park website to learn more about events past and present and to catch sight of plenty of photos.
