This ride through the Heights of Manhattan travels from Central Park along historic Saint Nicholas Avenue through Morningside, Hamilton, Washington, and Hudson Heights. You’ll travel through the Hamilton Heights historic district, past neo- Gothic spires, and a founding father’s home. Then, Fort Tryon Park affords sweeping views of the New Jersey Palisades across the Hudson River and houses the Cloisters Museum and Garden, well worth a visit regardless of your interest in medieval art or architecture. You’ll return southward along the Hudson River Greenway, framed by the Hudson River on one side and the towering cliffs of Fort Tryon Park on the other.
