Parks abound. The two-mile long Riverside Park, with its Promenade, playgrounds, outdoor cafes, multiple sports facilities and dog runs, is literally yards away—as is the waterfront Hudson River path, popular with cyclists, runners and recreational walkers. Meanwhile, the vast wilds and wonders of Central Park are only a 10-minute walk east. On the very same block as 345 is Straus Park, a small haven of peace and quiet with ornate fountain and tree-lined seating areas.
Other nearby attractions include the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Columbia University, Symphony Space Performing Arts Center, and Grant's Tomb.
The area enjoys such popular eating and drinking establishments as Shake Shack, Absolute Bagels, Tom's Restaurant (made famous by "Seinfeld") and the ultra cool Smoke Jazz and Supper Club. Supermarkets (a Whole Foods and two Fairways), bookstores and other necessities are all within easy striking distance.
This amazing neighborhood is accessible to all of New York City, home to the 1,2,and 3 subway lines (B and C a short distance away) as well as the M5, M104, M60, M7, M11, and M116 bus routes.
