''The neighborhood in the 100's has more of a small-town feeling, with people strolling over to the Columbia University campus and sitting in coffee shops". "Other monuments adding a sense of history to the Drive are the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial, the Joan of Arc Memorial statue, the Firemen's Memorial and Grant's Tomb, set on a hill overlooking the river". "The Riverside-West 105th Street Historic District, consisting of a group of French Beaux-Arts town houses (1899-1902), is known as ''Paris on the Hudson.''
