Beginning at 72nd St. off the Hudson River is this long stretch of waterfront land. It’s a great way to spend part of your day. Believe it. Once again, here is another fine example of Frederick Olmstead’s work. Responsible also for Prospect Park and Central Park he designed this park which was constructed from 71st St. to 145th St. by 1885. By 1908 it had reached 145th St. Commissioner Robert Moses, also responsible for Flushing Meadows Park amongst others, had this park reconstructed betw. 1934 and 1940. Mind you, this park is basically part of a long bit of land which stretches a ways up north on the Hudson side of Manhattan. It’s just that it’s named differently at different parts. At one point it becomes Fort Washington Park and then Fort Tryon Park.

Walking north, you’ve got New Jersey to your left, and plenty of parkland to your right. On warm days you’ll see plenty of sunbathers, dog walkers and people just lazin’ about. You could actually walk along this stretch all the way up to Fort Washington Park and the adjoining George Washington Bridge, but you’ll find sections where you might have to leave the path and rejoin it not too far ahead.

You’ll also come across Grant’s Tomb at 122nd St., a memorial to Ulysses S. Grant and his wife. Grant was not only the great General of the Mexican & Civil Wars, but he served as our president twice from 1869 – 1877.

There are other memorials along the way which you’ll come across. ‘Maybe some great picture taking moments?

I guarantee that you’d have gotten the New Yorkled state of mind into or out of you after walking along this tract of land.

Nearby is: Museum of Natural History at a 10 minute walk?
