Morningside Heights

College Town with Historical Sites and Plenty of Parks
What separates Morningside Heights from the rest of Upper West Side are the many academic and cultural establishments. Prestigious educational institutions include Columbia University, Barnard College, Teachers College, and the Manhattan School of Music. The area is also home to many religious landmarks, such as the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, the Riverside Church, and the Church of Notre Dame. Other must-see sites are the Low Memorial Library, General Grant's National Memorial, and Buell Hall.

Morningside Heights has no shortage of good eats, river views, and serene parks. A classic "Seinfeld" stop is the neon-signed Tom's Restaurant, and there are also farmers' markets throughout the week. Students, professionals, and families mostly live in rowhouses and condos here. This coffee-shop filled neighborhood is boasting with creativity and intellectual energy.
