This quiet, non-commercial block is worth exploring. The well-kept beaux arts and art deco styled homes are in full display. Love the "islands" on some of the blocks including W94th Street where a statue of Joan of Arc is on horseback with a sword.

The hotel is located in a good qiute area with giod price shops and Zabar's store nearby. Sub way 79 street red 1 line station is 2 min by feet. Warm room, 2 parks and Museums are near. Small room but cosy. Good waste of money.

The Riverside Drive was nice since the architecture around here is old world (walk ups). You will find people hanging around and so seems quite popular with kids and families per se. Not an ideal or a usual place to go if you are in NY, but nice to check out if you are in the area.

Love riding on this street and looking at the town houses, beautiful old apartment houses, the wonderful statues. And the parks that abut. It. The city has evolved around this drive and a slow walk or bike ride here is amazing. Be sure to stop and and view the several hundred years of history. There are a bunch of lights and traffic but travel at your own pace and appreciate the changing evolution. Here. All sorts of people and their pets are around and the city comes out to the parks and plays and fines here with cookouts and games. A magical place.

This is a pretty drive with very scenic views. I particularly enjoyed the views of the bridges and the east river.

We used to live in the first building on the south side of West 72nd Street and Riverside Drive and often walked up and down Riverside Drive (or Avenue). On a good day we could get all the way to the George Washington Bridge at 181st Street.

There are so many great sights along the way -- I'll post a few of my favorites as an attachment to this review.

Riverside Drive is one of my favorite streets in New York City. It basically parallels the West Side Highway. You can looking at the Hudson River, a park that runs along side for a large part of the drive and beautiful old buildings. You also past General Grant Memorial and Riverside Church.
