Designed to maximize the scenic potential of a narrow strip of land too rugged to accommodate Manhattan's street grid, Morningside Park is a masterful work of the team that also designed Central and Prospect parks. Massive and rugged retaining walls, grand and steep stairs, scenic overlooks and meandering paths cutting through native rock form a composition lauded by contemporaries as perhaps the greatest achievement of park designer Calvert Vaux. 

Having endured decades of neglect and controversial proposals such as a Columbia University gym that would have radically altered its design, the park is enjoying a remarkable period of revitalization.
