Within Central Park, and between the Hudson River Greenway and the west side of Manhattan, are tunnels to allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross roads heavily travelled by cars. In some parts of the world these passages are called subways.
Within Central Park, somewhere near the Carousel.
This way to the Hudson River Greenway, under the Henry Hudson Parkway.
As this post is being published, we are once again in San Francisco, visiting the triplets and their parents, and I’m probably amassing more photos of that captivating city.
One of the nicest walks we took when in New York City this past June, was along the Hudson River. The Hudson River Greenway runs all the way along the western edge of Manhattan: we walked from 84th Street to about 57th street. At 84th you can get under the Henry Hudson highway, and before 57th it is very hard to figure out how to get back across the highway. (We had to ask.) For most of our walk pedestrians and bicycles shared the same path, with pedestrians clinging to the outside edges as fit commuters pedalled north after work.
New York City, Manhattan Waterfront Greenway
Shortly after this section and beyond the rusting dock (note the CANADA geese) there were some interesting art installations (to come in a later Manhattan Monday post) and words carved into the walkway.
Saskatchewan Valley Canada – New York City
At this point the bicycles were on a different path so I wasn’t taking my life into my hands to get these photos.
Canadian Pacific Railway – New York City
I believe a rail line from Albany New York terminated near here. I can only surmise – because googling got me nowhere – that the trains owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway (Canadian Pacific Railroad is an error) brought grain from at least two of Canada’s prairie provinces (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) perhaps to be shipped overseas from docks along the river.
