Riverside Park Virtual Tour

1) Park Drive

On the west side of the drive now built for cars is a tree-lined promenade. On the east side stand residential buildings with majestic views over the Hudson. The original Riverside Drive is full of monumental constructions in ruin reminding us that New York City once dreamed of a metropolis grander than it now can maintain.
