Morningside Heights from End to End

There is so much to see in this wonderful neighborhood which is sandwiched in between the Upper West Side and Harlem. And Morningside Heights is so compact that we can walk from the SE corner at 110th Street to the Northwest corner at 125th Street in 2 hours. We will start with the Revolutionary War at a monument by Morningside Park, and end with the Civil War at Grant’s Tomb. In between we will see the many academic institutions (Columbia, Barnard, Teachers College, Manhattan School of Music, and two theological seminaries) which give the neighborhood its nickname of New York’s Academic Acropolis. Also on our route are its parks (Morningside and Sakura), magnificent churches (St. John the Divine and Riverside), and many beautiful prewar apartment buildings.
