Fort Washington Park: Beyond the Lighthouse, Visions of a Blue City
|I set out on a long walk early this afternoon to the park adjacent to the George Washington Bridge.|
Here is the much-discussed bridge.
If you want to go here, walk west on W. 181st and then locate the pedestrian bridge over the highway.
|One of the notable features of Fort Washington Park is the view of the bridge and of the Palisades of New Jersey.|
It was Super Bowl Sunday, and a lot of people were trying to get to Jersey.
|Many cyclists and runners explored the paths underneath the bridge.|
I was fortunate that we did not collide.
|Beyond the lighthouse to the south, an ethereal city rose in the fog above the Hudson River.|
|In the middle, One World Trade Center.|
On the left, the Gothic spire of Riverside Church.
|Canada Geese flocked to the park and fed on grasses under the melted snow.|
|A dog romped along the shoreline.|
|A runner reached his destination and gave the lighthouse a gentle tap.|
