Riverside Park

This exhibit describes the evolution of Riverside Park and Riverside Drive, adjacent to the Hudson River on the far west side of Morningside Heights. First conceived in 1865, the park and drive were redesigned by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1873 and built over several decades. Olmsted championed the urban park movement, bringing fresh air and open space to city dwellers.
