LOCATION RIVERSIDE TOWER - This is a residential neighborhood just above mid-town. It is quiet, so you will get a good night's sleep away from midtown traffic. We are located 5 minutes from midtown, once you step into a cab or the subway. You can get a cab in less than a minute, and the subway is 3 blocks away, (a 3 minute walk). Three bus lines are also nearby. We give you maps of the city subway and bus lines.

The Museum of Natural History is 4 blocks away on our same street; Lincoln Center is just below us; and you can walk to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Empire State Building is 15 minutes by subway and the Statue of Liberty, (ferry boat), is about 25 minutes.
