Morningside Heights, just west of Harlem, is the site of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, Columbia University, Barnard College, Bank Street College of Education, the National Council of Churches, Union Theological Seminary, Manhattan School of Music, Teachers College and Jewish Theological Seminary of America, as well as Grant's Tomb and Riverside Church.
Traditionally the neighborhood ranged from the former village of Harsenville, centered on the old Bloomingdale Road (now Broadway) and 65th Street, west to the railroad yards along the Hudson, then north to 110th Street, where the ground rises to Morningside Heights.

After feeling a bit inundated by dates, I took in a diversion in the form of an ostrich race.
The "race" was more like watching the Keystone Kops trying to mount very large birds or small dinosaurs that didn't want to be ridden by anybody and did everything possible to keep it that way. I was pretty much rooting for the beasts to trample their cowboy subjugators.
In fact, there were so many I couldn't even keep track.That's if you chose to dive head first into a crate full of dates and not come up for air, then you could die of date asphyxiation. Really, I knew of one variety, the very popular date called the Medjool.It's hefty with a nice pliable and semi-soft texture and super sweet.Within 48 hours you'll receive an email informing you of your mutual match and provide their contact information.These speed dating mixers are for singles ages 25-45.
