About Washington Heights
Right above the Upper West Side is Morningside Heights, a classic overachiever with Manhattan's highest concentration of colleges and seminaries. The Hungarian Pastry Shop and Oren's Daily Roast provide fuel for recitals at Manhattan School of Music, protests at Columbia University's Low Library, and browsing at Barnard College's collection of 'zines by women. For contemplative moments away from the roar of downtown, roam the grounds at Grant's Tomb and check out an organ concert at the unfinished Cathedral of St. John the Divine. North of 125th St., Washington Heights revives the senses with Dominican diners and unexpected artistic masterpieces. The Cloisters houses the Metropolitan Museum's medieval art collection in a 1930s landmark, built of stones scavenged from ancient European monasteries. Inside the historic Audubon Terrace complex, the Hispanic Society of America is lined with with Goyas, El Grecos, and Spanish decorative arts. For adventure, try rock climbing with Hudson River views at Fort Tryton Park, or explore the decommissioned Little Red Lighthouse hidden under the George Washington Bridge.
