Morningside Park

Although Columbia is in an enormous city, there are many great parks nearby. Morningside Park is located right next to Columbia's campus and takes its namesake from the neighborhood in which Columbia residesā€”Morningside Heights. From the overlook by Columbia, one can see the rest of the nearby community, including Harlem and Midtown. If you get the chance to visit, you should definitely stop here to get a sense of the community around Columbia.
