This is up near the Cloisters. Experienced it while doing an interesting bike ride around the island of Manhattan.
it’s the Overlook Pavilion near Grant’s Tomb
wonder who is buried THERE????
Prospect Park, near where Montgomery Clift is buried?
St. Clair Pollock?
The Parade Grounds pavilion in Prospect Park.
Riverside Park, upper Manhattan, just north of the George Washington bridge. Ice-T trained Chris Rock here in the movie New Jack City.
It’s called “Inspiration Point” or “the Pavilion” on the bike path parallel to the Deagan within Fort Tryon Park. Bicyclists typically rest there.
You’re not far from Grant’s Tomb. I should know, because I live in that area!
We weary walkers pass this promenade every year as part of the Great Saunter. It’s an unexpected bit of architectural beauty, but mostly cut off from the nearby surface streets so it seems mostly to be used by hikers and cyclists.
Hall of Fame for Great Americans in the Bronx!
No one is buried here. It is a mausoleum!!!
Technically, Pres. and Mrs. Grant are not buried there. They are above ground, so entombed.
Too bad we did not cross paths, I work with the National Park Service at General Grant National Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial.
Stop by Alexander Hamilton’s home one day Kevin!
this is right behind Grant’s Tomb. Next to it is a tomb of a child that fell off the cliffs.
