Heaven on the Hudson: Mansions, Monuments, and Marvels of Riverside Park, is a colorful tale of a singular New York City neighborhood and the people who make it special. Told in the personal voice of a long-time resident, the book features the history, architecture, and personalities of this often overlooked neighborhood, from early days through the present. A native New Yorker who has lived across from Riverside Park most of her life, author Stephanie Azzarone has spent many joyous hours learning about the city’s history and architecture, and even more wandering up and down Riverside Park and Riverside Drive. A former journalist (freelancer for The New York Times and New York magazine, among others), she also ran an award-winning Manhattan public relations agency. A graduate of New York University, Stephanie has a degree in Journalism.
