    The 191 acres (0.77 km2) of land in the orig­i­nal park be­tween 72nd to 125th Streets were orig­i­nally in­hab­ited by the Lenape peo­ple, but by the 18th cen­tury were used for farms.:68 In 1846, the Hud­son River Rail­road (later the West Side Line and Hud­son Line) was built along the wa­ter­front, con­nect­ing New York City to Albany.:3 In 1865, Cen­tral Park com­mis­sioner William R. Mar­tin put forth the first pro­posal for a river­side park along the Hud­son River.:3 An act pro­vid­in...

    Expansion of Riverside Park

    In the 1930s, New York Cen­tral Rail­road's rail track north of 72nd Street was cov­ered in a Robert Moses pro­ject called the West Side Im­prove­ment. Moses' bi­og­ra­pher Robert Carode­scribed Moses sur­vey­ing the area prior to his pro­ject, and see­ing: The Moses pro­ject, which was big­ger than the Hoover Dam pro­ject, cre­ated the Henry Hud­son Park­way, buried the West Side Line in the Free­dom Tun­nel, and greatly ex­panded River­side Park. It was so skill­fully done that many be­liev...

    Riverside South

    In the 1980s Don­ald Trump, then owner of the 57 acres (230,000 m2) of land just south of River­side Park that had been the Penn Cen­tral freight rail yard, pro­posed a very large real es­tate de­vel­op­ment project. How­ever, ham­pered by his weak­ened fi­nan­cial con­di­tion and op­posed by six civic groups (Mu­nic­i­pal Art So­ci­ety, Nat­ural Re­sources De­fense Coun­cil, TNew York­ers for Parks, Re­gional Plan As­so­ci­a­tion, River­side Park Fund, and West­pride), Trump agreed in 1990 t...

    Start­ing at 72nd Street, River­side Drive passes through the Man­hat­tan neigh­bor­hoods of the Upper West Side, Morn­ing­side Heights, over Man­hat­tanville in West Harlem by way of the River­side Drive Viaduct and through Wash­ing­ton Heights. Below 72nd Street, River­side Drive con­tin­ues as River­side Boule­vard which stretches through River­side South to 59th Street where it merges into the West Side High­way. Only a few stretches of River­side Drive were built along an older road; due to the hilly ter­rain, River­side Drive crosses a nat­ural cleft in the bedrock at 87th Street on an iron viaduct and passes over 96th Street, Tie­mann Place and 135th Street, and 158th Street on fur­ther viaducts. At Tie­mann Place and 135th Street, and at 158th Street, an old align­ment is pre­sent, also named River­side Drive, while the viaduct por­tion or main route is of­fi­cially named and signed "River­side Drive West". The viaductbe­tween Tie­mann Place and 135th Street is called the "R...

    Residential buildings

    The east­ern side of River­side Drive, once a se­ries of lux­u­ri­ously fin­ished row­houses in­ter­spersed with free-stand­ing nine­teenth cen­tury man­sionsset in large lawns, today is lined with lux­ury apart­ment build­ings and some re­main­ing town houses from 72nd to 118th Streets. The brick-faced Schwab House oc­cu­pies the site of "River­side", built for steel mag­nate Charles M. Schwab, for­merly the grand­est and most am­bi­tious house ever built on Man­hat­tan Is­land. Among the mo...

    You should add the movie "You've Got Mail" to your description of Riverside Drive, since Meg Ryan lives in the neighborhood and the final wonderful scene takes place just outide of Hippo Park - on the Promenade at 91st Street and Riverside Park. ((subst:xsign|21:00, 16 November 2008‎}}

    I propose a couple of sentences be included to describe the Master Building. I have found this unattributed text on the Internet: 1. "The Master building, built in 1929, is the tallest building on Riverside Drive and its corner windows are reputed to be the first in Manhattan. The building was originally conceived as an artist colony by the artist and philosopher Nicholas Roerich. Notable people from around the world visited and were residents of the Master building. Of particular interest, Manly P. Hall and Joseph Campbellare amongst those who have been residents." __meco (talk) 11:31, 5 September 2010 (UTC) 1.

    The current set of photos seems weak. Riverside Blvd. is not the subject of this article. We should try to find a similar photo which shows a section of Riverside Drive. The snow photo and the photo of 72nd Street are similarly uninformative, in my opinion. Perhaps some editor knows of or could contribute photos more central to the topic.

    Dear Ken, I'm afraid that it is you who are ignorant of Riverside South's history. Here are references to the original documents. See FEIS, CPC approval, NYT article on approval, andNYT article with Trump referring to his Riverside South buildings. Trump didn't even have control of the project when he had his name put on three buildings: Bloomberg article. He was in charge of marketing. Putting his name on the first three buildings was nothing more than a marketing ploy. Five years later, having become a TV star, he simply lost interest and let the actual owners continue to develop the project. No one referred to the project by the name "Trump Place" before or since. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pamela Miller (talk • contribs) 17:00, 8 November 2017 (UTC) 1.

    Ken, The slide presentation you added as footnote 15 is a progress report on construction of Riverside Park South. It is better placed on the Riverside Park (Manhattan) page. The one I added as footnote 16 is a view from north to south showing all of Riverside South, and highlighting Riverside Boulevard and its connection to Riverside Drive at 72nd Street, which fits better with the subject of this page. Maybe a photograph of the real Riverside Boulevard would be better than a photo of a model, but in the meantime this photograph should suffice. Pamela Miller 1. Google Drive is not a reliable source.
