Next door is the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan's oldest house where George Washington stayed. Now a museum, visitors can see how the upper class lived in New York over 200 years ago. Surrounding the museum is a wonderful garden, where you can sit outside on a nice day and relax and enjoy views of Manhattan's skyscrapers downtown, or Yankee Stadium, just across the Harlem River.
But when Broadway, the Empire State Building and the other
famous sites of New York call you, you can walk just up the street
to the subway station (less than a block away), and catch the Cand catch the C train to Midtown Manhattan, just 25 minutes away
Walk one block past the station and you will be on uptown Broadway,
where you will find supermarkets, banks, restaurants,
stores, and the world-renowned Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
Walk another block past Broadway, and you can go down to Fort
Washington Park, alongside the Hudson River, with miles of
bicycle and jogging paths, and from where you can enjoy beautiful
views of the George Washington Bridge and the Palisade Cliffs
of New Jersey. A few stops uptown on the subway brings you to
the wonderful Cloisters, a few stops downtown to Central Park.
