As a new semester begins and the leaves start to change, it’s no secret that fall is quite possibly one of our favorite seasons in New York City. Whether it’s a cozy stroll through Riverside Park or admiring the foliage around Russell Tower, here are some of our favorite fall moments around Morningside Heights:
