About Morningside Heights
"For the sporty,the scholarly and the pious"
Morningside Heights which extends from 110th Street to 125th Street from Riverside Park in the west to Morningside Park in the east is a neighborhood in New York City that is renowned as the home of Columbia University though aside from this world famous university, Morningside Heights is also home to other academic institutions like Barnard College, the Bank Street College of Education and the Manhattan School of Music. Due to the preponderance of these academic institutions the area’s many prewar co-ops and row houses are largely occupied by students as well as faculty and staff of Columbia University.
Aside from being the home to these many institutions of higher learning, Morningside heights also hosts two of New York City’s most famous churches namely the gothic Riverside Church which overlooks the Hudson and has within its folds the world’s largest church bell and the world’s largest gothic cathedral, the magnificent Cathedral of St. John the Divine which hosts a popular albeit eccentric annual event for biking enthusiasts in New York City in April every year. This event which is known as the Blessing of the Bicycles kicks off the annual biking season in New York City and features the sprinkling of bicycles with holy water in an effort to keep them safe for the entire duration of the cycling season.
In order to cater to the needs of its resident student population, Morningside Heights also features many lively stores, cafes and restaurants like the relatively upscale organic café Community Food and Juice which is located on Broadway between 112 and 113 streets and the excellent children’s book store, Bank Street books which is located nearby on 112th street.
