“This 30-acre park has distinctive natural geography of a rugged cliff. There are playgrounds, basketball courts, and baseball/softball diamonds, plus a waterfall and pond. Catch some shade or sun - there are open and tree-covered areas alike. A great spot to have a picnic or stroll. ”

Park
“This park is full of charm and wonder. The long stairs that go down into the park and then climb up and take you to the Far West Side are full of adventure. It's always fun to go through a stroll in the park and cross from Harlem into Morningside Heights and vice-versa. There is a trail for runners and ample green space for recreational activities. ”

Shopping Mall
“City Place is one of the few fortunate malls to have a great location by the Hudson River, right across Manhattan. It's very convenient as it's right in front of our building. You can do most of your basic, quick shopping there. There are plenty of clothing shops about City Place. Some stores included -- Victoria's Secret, Anthropologie, Gap, Banana Republic, Talbot's, Carter's, and Guess Jeans. Non-clothing shops include general stores and restaurants such as Ulta, Panera Bread, Chipotle, Greek Taverna, Vitamin Shoppe, Bareburger, Original Pancake House and Fleming's Steakhouse. ”

Park
“Sweet little gem planted smack dab in the middle of the West End. It is well cared for, and the park benches give it that extra little ambiance. It's a welcomed sight when walking through the neighborhood. The flowers and plants are thriving, the trees are well-kept, and it actually seems to beckon you to come sit down and take a load off. After seeing sidewalks all day, this is truly a treasure for the eyes as well as the soul.”
