The Towers near Riverside Park

Trump Place, UWS
Photo by myself in Riverside Park, on the Upper West Side.

A series of towers called Trump Place are built along the west side of Manhattan. The development has extended the park, while giving the apartments have a clear view of the Hudson River and New Jersey.

Riverside Park starts around 158th Street and runs down to 72nd Street on the west side. From there you can take a bike path that runs along the water, all the way down to Battery Park City, at the southern tip of Manhattan.


Sunday we had gorgeous weather, so Mark and I took Rupert out to Riverside Park. We had a small picnic along the water and walked around a bit.

I took tons of photos and could not decide what to show. I finally decided on a cheery color photo, to start off the week.

Have a good Monday, everyone!

That's a very impressive skyline! And I find it amazing — and wonderful — that NYC has so many parks among all its skyscrapers.

I really like this view Kitty. & I don't know why exactly, maybe it's a distant memory, but this photo reminds me of the 70's.

Spring has finally sprung! The trees outside my office are all in bloom - great to see all the April showers doing some good.

This is a great picture but aaargh, I hate those specific buildings. Very bland and uninspired. At street level, it is even more depressing. But... they have nice views!
I do love the elevate highway.
