Trumped, on the Upper West Side

Trump Plaza, UWS
Photo by myself in Riverside Park, on the Upper West Side, around 68th Street.

Trump Place is not one building, but a series of 16 very similar-looking apartment buildings on the West Side.

The raised highway running in front of the buildings is the West Side Highway. The highway eventually touches ground and runs along the edge of Manhattan.

If you have the chance, take a cab ride up the West Side Highway. Zipping across these buildings is a dramatic view, as well as seeing the whole back side of Midtown.


Happy Monday, everyone!

hey had 5 year to compost and seed those hills. Couldn't find enough crap in NYC I would imagine.
They decided to by very expensive sod and put it down by undocumented's in the middle of a heat wave.
Who is the genius? I can't see it from my house construction company....?
