There’s a new section of Riverside Park South that officially opened today. It’s on my usual running route, but has been fenced off, so I was pleased to see on Saturday that the fences had been taken down. In fact, it was open to pedestrians over the weekend even though it wasn’t quite finished (they were doing some final landscaping yesterday morning). I was inspired to walk up the Hudson and take a few pictures, finishing up at the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument. I didn’t actually take any pictures of the new park section itself, and concentrated more on the river.
(As an aside: I promise this blog will get less NYC-centric in the future! Most of my attention lately has been divided between exploring the city and starting my new job–and I can’t blog about the latter, hence the focus on the city. But as I get more settled in I will have other topics to write about.)
