"Morning Side Park is Beautiful to See"

If you ever want to see beauty on a street, you need to go the corner of Morningside Drive and E. 118th St. Morningside Dr. runs alongside Morning Side Park. It is because of this park that makes the place so beautiful. But at E. 118th St. you get to sit down at a little sitting area and enjoy the view.
  • Beautiful looking area
  • Beautiful park at end of road
  • Too many kids around during summer
  • Too many people at times

"Perfect for families."

Morningside Drive runs along Morningside Park giving residents a nice natural oasis. While it has been overrun by much of Columbia around the low 100's it's still a nice, quiet and peaceful area. Subway service might not be super easy to come by but it's still a worth location for people looking for a great street with a more homey feel. It's a great place to raise a family while still living in Manhattan.

"Trade convenience for quiet"

Morningside Drive is a gorgeous area of the city. The street runs alongside Morning Side park and those who are lucky enough to live in the area will find that the tree-lined street is very out of the ordinary for Manhattan. Parking is not terrible in the area either, which is nice for residents who wish to keep a car. The park is a nice haven for nature lovers and athletes alike and you can't beat walking right across the street to find the nature that most Manhattan-ites yearn for. There are some great convenience stores in the area which makes shopping easy, however public transportation is less accessible and it can be a bit of a hall to get from the area down to midtown and downtown for work. While the commute is a bit much for some it's a nice trade off in my opinion and a nice place to have a family.
