Riverside Park

Local nameRiverside Park
LocationManhattan, New York City, United States

Riverside Park is a scenic waterfront public park in the Upper West Side, Morningside Heights, and Hamilton Heights neighborhoods of the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The park consists of a 4-mile strip of land with a width of between 100 and 500 feet, situated between the Hudson River/Henry Hudson Parkway and the serpentine Riverside Drive.

Riverside Park was established by land condemnation in 1872 and was developed concurrently with Riverside Drive. Originally running between 72nd and 125th Streets, it was extended northward in the first decade of the 20th century. When the park was first laid out, access to the river was blocked by the right-of-way of the New York Central Railroad's West Side Line.
