Elegant Riverside Park: A Highway Runs Through It (and a railroad runs under it!)

Janes Walk

Led By Rhonda Heise Asher

Join us for a springtime stroll through Riverside Park. We will look at clues in the park holding stories about history, transportation, money, and scandal! We’ll enjoy the beauty of Riverside as we walk along. Note: Route includes hills and stairs. We start at 72nd St, and participants can chose to end at 79th, 96th, or 122nd Street. Bring snack/water if going on long version. We will make bathroom stops.
