Celebrating the Summer Season at The Riverside in Manhattan!



There are a host of fun and adventurous programs going on at our community for the entire month! Stop by and join us! 

Summertime Trip to the Boat Basin

Starting off the month, on August 7th, we will be transporting our residents to an exciting outdoor trip to the Boat Basin on West 79th Street overlooking the Hudson River! The trip leaves the Riverside at 10:00 a.m. heading for a grove of shady trees with a view that can’t be beaten anywhere in the world. We will have picnic lunches, music, blankets, sunscreen, canvas and paint to catch the amazing scenery! If your family is on the trip, please join us for a day we know the residents will never forget!

Jewelry Sale 

On August 15th, we will be hosting our second Jewelry Sale! Everything will be $5.00! Our residents will have a chance to stock up on beautiful jewelry, in time for the upcoming holiday season! The sale starts at 10:30 a.m. in the Solarium and ends at 2:30 p.m. There will be a Jewelry-making class and music with a chance to socialize and talk fashion with peers! Don’t miss this sale; it will be better than Prime Day!!!

Caribbean Carnival

August 29th is our 4th Annual Caribbean Carnival at the Riverside! Currently, our residents are busy making their carnival headpieces for the big day! They will have a chance to display their amazing headpieces, as they dance to the rhythm of Soca and Calypso music! To top it off, our residents will have the chance to delve into some delicious Caribbean treats like doubles from Trinidad, beef patties from Jamaica and the very tasty sorrel drink that everyone in the Caribbean loves! Come end the summer and have a good time at the Riverside!

The Riverside Rooftop Event

The Manhattan skyline will be a sight to see as The Riverside hosts its rooftop event for social workers in the metropolitan area.

As the summer hits its final full month, we want to celebrate the warm summer nights with those who work so hard and do so much for The Riverside on a daily basis.

On Thursday, August 8th,  join The Riverside team for a night of lovely conversation, food, drinks, and good times, beginning at 5:30 pm at STK Rooftop.
