Upper West Side scenes in Manhattan
Manhattan's Upper West Side is a great place to spend some time during the spring. Top: A view of Riverside Church and the Union Theological Seminary from the corner of Riverside Avenue and W. 122nd Street. 2nd from top: Renovations are ongoing for portions of Riverside Church. Middle and 2nd from bottom: Manhattan's Sakura Park is located across the street from Grant's Tomb, and is a great place to read a book or do nothing at all. Bottom: According to the plate adjacent the statue of Gen. Butterfield, his father was one of the founders of American Express. I guess that is good enough to get his son a statue all by itself.
