Weave back and forth from Riverside Drive, the sinuous palisade of elegant apartment towers (and occasional town houses) and Riverside Park, the waterfront park that took shape in three distinct phases: Olmsted, City Beautiful, and Robert Moses (who was the one who actually extended the park to the waterfront).  The nineteenth-century development of Manhattan's "West End," the twentieth-century West Side Improvement, and the way Riverside Park's appearances in the movies have served as a kind of barometer of the state of the city will all be discussed.
