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.

When your blood sugar drops precipitously between scouring MOMA's many floors and a rousing skate at Wolman Rink, you might stop by a Korean deli for a pick-me-up. Don't overlook the city's other ubiquitous font of snacks: health food stores. No longer do these stores' foods taste indistinguishable from their packaging. Along most of the avenues you'll find these often yellow-awning'd stores packed with snackables, from dried nuts and fruits to actually tasty soy sandwiches, bento boxes, and usually fresh-squeezed vegetable and fruit juices.
