Historic Hudson Heights

Janes Walk

Led By Bob Marks

From the highest point in Manhattan and the Battlefield of Fort Washington to the world’s busiest bridge to a shrine to the first American Saint to the splendor of Fort Tryon Park to a Medieval sanctuary of art. In a little over one mile, see all the history and culture packed into this historic enclave in upper Manhattan.

Walk will be a little over one mile. Some slightly hilly terrain, especially when leaving the park after the tour. Some steps into Bennett Park and in Fort Tryon Park, not very steep or excessively demanding. It is best to reach the starting point by taking the A train to the 181st Street Station and exiting the north or uptown end of the train, which should indicate 185th Street entrance, Take elevator up to street level and Bennett Park is directly across the street. The M4 bus also takes you to Fort Washington Avenue across from the park.
