the Upper West Side
in Riverside Park


Two of the main characters of You've Got Mail meet here amidst a verdant display of flowers in New York's famous Riverside Park.

Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (who also designed Central Park) and built in 1875, Riverside Park starts at 72nd street, extends four miles up to 158th, and covers almost 300 acres of waterfront along the Hudson River. Major areas of the park were reworked between 1937 and 1941 under the administration of legendary and controversial New York City Parks Commissioner Robert Moses.


The 91st St. Garden is one of several privately maintained gardens in the park.
