  • In the old days was unbelievably dangerous parks. So if you go to this place a while ago was now so much was going on here when people break into a safe place well say go ... There are good enough to make a lot of changes. In the old days were terrifying. now flowers trees transformed itself into a safe place just so pretty and so out of place walking, lots of people and lots of people to work in a quiet and beautiful place.

  • Lovely landscaping, a good workout slope for your exercise, safe playground, plenty of dog lovers to run into, and a new demographic for the gentrified Harlem. Families crowd the park during the weeke...  more »
  • It was a surprise oil out to walk down Columbus and found this gem. It is very domestic, has a beautiful vegetation and children games. Recommended.

  • Honestly I prefer Morningside Park over Central Park. It's lesser known, so it's quieter and has less people. We went twice over our week stay in NYC, and we were delighted to find many turtles (pictured) the first time and a beautiful crane and a cat the second visit. There are multiple sports fields for basketball and baseball in addition to a playground and lots of open grass. This could also be great for exercising as path mileage is posted on signs every 1/8 mile, and there are tons of stairs to trample up and down.
  • It's a beautiful park all year round and has multiple play areas and places to relax, even a dog park! It can serve as a really good shortcut to places like the library or pinkberry, but during allergy season it's a bad idea to go- short story short, flowers and pollen everywhere. Also bugs, wild cats and exotic birds that escaped from the zoo.. all of this is still a great sight to see.
  • Some great spots to take pictures. Love the lake. Always some event. In winter with snow is a lot of fun. Worse than Riverside Drive and central park. Avoid during night.
  • It's a nice park with plenty of hills and valleys, good for kids of all ages. It also has a baseball field.
  • GREAT PARK... WALKING... NICE NEW PLAYGROUNDS... CLEAN GRASS UPPER SIDE... PERFECT TO WALK YOUR DOG...

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
