Driving Through the Upper West Side

Nearby, visit the American Museum of Natural History to view dinosaur bones and top-notch exhibits on biodiversity and outer space. On your way back to the Upper West Side, admire the towers of luxury co-ops such as the San Remo and the Eldorado on the fringes of the Park. Turn your wheels north to check out the Columbia University campus and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the world's largest cathedral. Stroll the promenade of Riverside Park and watch locals exercise their pets in the dog run, then head south to admire the beautiful Beacon Theatre.
