What to do
Grant's Tomb on Riverside Drive and 122nd Street, is the largest mausoleum in North America, containing the bodies of Ulysses S. Grant (1822–1885), American Civil War General and 18th President of the United States, and his wife, Julia Dent Grant (1826–1902). The structure is situated in a prominent location in Riverside Park overlooking the Hudson River.
Harlem Piers is located on Riverside and 125th Street. In summer 2008, the long-awaited West Harlem Piers Park opened to the public, much to the joy of uptown residents and visitors. The piers are a great place to enjoy views of the Hudson, lounge on the grass lawns, and take a break from bike riding on the Riverside bike path.
