Let's Explore Morningside Heights

  • Sep 21, 2013 · 1:30 PM

*** Update ***

The results are in... and in a landslide, it's Morningside Heights! The MH De Blasio'd all of the other candidates, more than doubling its nearest competitor. The results were:

Morningside Heights 15

Upper East Side 7

Chelsea 5

East Village / Alphabet City 4

Chinatown 2

So we'll give this neighborhood a decent going-over, covering such local landmarks as the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Columbia Quad, Grant's Tomb, Morningside Park, and Riverside Church. For those who are interested, we'll grab a bite nearby afterward, perhaps by paying tribute to Seinfeld at Tom's Restaurant?

Please read the reservation and cancellation policy, which you can find at http://www.meetup.com/Lets-Explore-New-Yorks-Neighborhoods/pages/RSVP_and_Cancellation_Policy/. Keep in mind that cancellations must be at least 24 hours in advance.

- If your name appears on the "attending" list before Tuesday, September 17, then you'll receive an e-mail with the details (including meeting location and contact information) on that date.

- If you appear on the "attending" list later that week, then you'll get the e-mail within 24 hours.

- If you are moved to the "attending" list on Friday, September 20, then you'll get the e-mail later that day.

If you are on the "attending" list but haven't gotten the e-mail by the specified time, then please contact me directly. (Go to my Meetup profile page and click "send email.") Please do not ask for details on the discussion board. I check my e-mail regularly up to the morning of the event. Thanks!

As we prepare to elect the city's next mayor, let's bring some democracy to Let's Explore NY's Neighborhoods, as well. Please indicate which neighborhood you'd like to visit in the comments section. As in the mayoral election, you can only vote once. (This isn't Chicago, after all.) A week before the event, I'll tally up the votes and announce the winning neighborhood. So check back next Saturday, September 14, to find out where we're going. And the candidates are...

 

Chelsea
Chinatown
East Village / Alphabet City
Morningside Heights
Upper East Side

    A very enjoyable walk through this someehat familiar neighborhood with surprises. I was impressed with the
    grandeur of Riverside Church. Who would have thought a
    Baptist church would be so magnificent, unless of course it was founded by a Rockefeller.Terrific group and organizer.

    Mark,

    I thought that I had said YES when I voted for which area to tour. Do you know what happened? Also I had t visit the American Youth Hostel on 103rd and Amsterdam, I will send you a photo of the plaque outside the building. IN the entrance are photos and history of the building. There is also a plaque that I could not see that Andrew Goodman one of the three young men who died I the civil rights movements, mother, asked that the plaque be placed where young people could see it. There are tours of the building but one has to make arrangements. You may already know about this but I thought I would let you know in case you could organize a tour for the group of the AYH.

    How about Little Italy. Morningside Heights is awesome, but 125th Street has a better history.

    September 12, 2013

  • Carol

    Marc, when are you going to decide on the location? If it's not one I'm interested in, I'd like to (a) give my spot to someone else and (b) make other plans for that day! :)

    Just a reminder... please don't vote for "either this place or that one," since that's two votes. And don't vote for "anyplace except ..." since that's really four votes! As you do in the voting booth or at the deli counter, just go with the one that your heart tells you. Thanks!
