Directions via Google Maps
This park is named for Bronx citizen Julius J. Richman (1915–1972), whose long career in civil service blended skill in finance with an interest in public welfare, and it's also named for the well-defined echo that can be heard between the two large rock masses that dominate its dramatic topography. Its crevasses and summits, shaded green regions, and terraced steps create a wide variation in sunlight and elevation.
