Neighborhood Audubon Park is ideally suited for today’s varied lifestyles and neighborly values.

Stroll along winding streets and grand pre-war, Beaux-Arts buildings to Riverside Park and the Hudson River Greenway.

You’ll be ideally situated between Columbia University’s burgeoning Manhattanville campus and world-class NY Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.

Engage in early Americana at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Hamilton Grange Museum, Trinity Cemetery, and various Audubon sites. “The vast majority of the buildings within the Audubon Historic District are highly intact, retaining the vibrant architectural details and character that attracted residents to the area a century ago. The curving streets and dramatic vistas that result from the hilly topography continue to define the neighborhood as a distinctive enclave of apartment buildings with a powerful sense of place. Elaborate cornices are generally of pressed metal and sometimes incorporate green Mission-style tile, such as the Renaissance Revival style Grinnell” (Report: New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission 5/12/09). The area around 800 Riverside Drive is by far a walker’s and biker’s paradise.
