Staircase (Morningside Park)


At the border between Harlem and Morningside Heights, Morningside Park “came into existence as a cost-saving measure to avoid the expense of extending the street grid across difficult terrain” (wikipedia). Designed by Olmstead and Vaux, this heavy staircase at 116th St. twists and turns as it ascends on its way up.
