More than many other city parks, Morningside Park gives the distinct impression that you're outside Manhattan. Staring up at the rocky cliff face that is the park's most distinctive feature, you'll forget about the skyscrapers around you. Throw in a charcoal grill and maybe a brown-bagged beverage and you'll have all the necessary ingredients for an afternoon vacation.
