Morningside 1-5000

I was interested in looking at Morningside Heights. It has a unique condition where the already long and skinny island of Manhattan is divided further into an even narrower slice between Riverside and Morningside Parks. Then, in the middle of this narrow area, sits Columbia’s campus which A) carves out another bit of space, and B) draws students and faculty to the area in need of housing and commercial services
