More Than A View At One Riverside Park

Located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, which is perfectly situated between Riverside Park and Central Park, One Riverside Park offers a lively neighborhood that many would describe as being at the center of New York City’s culture scene.

With a tremendous star-studded lineup for the month of November – including – the Big Apple Circus, Tosca presented by the Metropolitan Opera, Salonen, Sibelius, and Ravel of the New York Philharmonic, Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Ted Nash Big Band from Jazz at Lincoln Center – Lincoln Center  has something for everyone.

If you’re looking for a something to do on a Saturday with your little ones, the American Museum of Natural History, which just opened a new space show in the Hayden Planetarium, Dark Universe, is great for both kids and adults. The show celebrates the pivotal discoveries that have led us to greater knowledge of the structure and history of the universe and our place in it.

If you’re a history buff you’ll enjoy the New-York Historical Society.  You can explore the story of New York and America in the Robert H. and Clarice Smith New York Gallery of American History or visit The Henry Luce III Center for the Study of American Culture on the fourth floor provides public access to nearly 40,000 objects from the New-York Historical Society’s permanent collection.

If three isn’t enough and you’re still looking for more cultural activities on the Upper West Side check out these other great venues including: The American Folk Art Museum and The Jewish Museum.
