I am starting to give up hope that I will be removed from the Arbor and put in someplace I like. So I am looking at apartments all over including Harlem. But I heard that you can't walk East to West through Morningside Park. Morningside Drive is basically a wall that you have to walk around by going down to 110th street or up to 123rd street. Is that really true? Is there no place to cross through the Park from Harlem and end up on campus?
You can definitely walk through the park (you'll need to ready for a lot of stairs), but I wouldn't do it at night. I'm sure ~99% of the time you'd be fine at night too, but I wouldn't take that risk. Parks at night in NYC are not the places you generally want to be.
