Upper West Side joggers, rollerbladers and dog owners love this four-mile long park beside the Hudson River. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the same architects behind Central Park and Prospect Park , Riverside Park boasts excellent views of the river and New Jersey. Park attractions include Grant's Tomb, the Civil War Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, and a statue of Eleanor Roosevelt. Early morning may be the best time to visit or exercise, as this park can become fairly crowded.
