A beautiful newer extension of beautiful old Riverside Park, with longer and shorter piers reaching into the Hudson, lovely landscaping including trees, grasses, and wooden boardwalks, and (my favorite) steps that bring you as close to the river as you can get...

It’s actually become rather too crowded for this moment [during coronavirus] (ie lots and lots of people have take  up running and are running too close to the rest of us)....I look forward to having it more to myself again sometime in the future.
