Riverside Park is located in
Upper West Side
other neighborhoods in Upper West Side include:
Riverside Park spans four miles along Manhattan's West Side, from 72nd Street to 158th Street. With full views of the Hudson and the western shore of industrial New Jersey, just far enough away to provide an attractive backdrop, there is ample room for runners, bikers, dogs, and playing children to coexist. The park design may remind you of Boston Commons and Central Park; this site, too, was designed by Olmstead, 25 years after his commission in Central Park.

If you have a laptop with wi-fi, you rarely need to be without My Urban Sherpa. More and more of the city's private and public spaces have free wireless access. Bryant Park has long been a laptop scene, more recently joined by Union Square Park, Dag Hammerskjold Park, eight locations in Central Park, and a variety of other spots will in town. A Starbucks often has a private wireless connection floating by, and some residents have been known to sidle up to big co-op buildings and play the odds: odds are, someone has a connection you can hitch-hike on.
