Walking NYC - ALL of it!

Land wise, Manhattan isn't that big, but I've yet to explore vast expanses of it, despite having been an NYC resident for the past 5 years. 

Lucky for me, my mom came across this article.  We decided to embark on a NYC walking adventure of our own this weekend - here are some pictures from our journey I wanted to share!

We met first at Grand Central, since my mom came in from Connecticut and I came in from Brooklyn.  We took the A train up to 207th - last stop and got out on Broadway.  Check out this cute little house!  Its quite old I believe - but amazing amidst all of the more urban buildings. 
I don't read Latin, but 1625 is old dude! 

Mom and I at the start of our journey, all smiles. 

The landscape that far north isn't flat, but quite hilly.

Hence the road, Hillside Ave.

Quite a bit of green space and parks - love it!

But not as much as this little stand of corn someone planted by the side of the road!  Pretty awesome, I must say. 

We passed the entrance facility to the George Washington Bridge which was kind of neat-o.

As was this sign that we came across outside of a huge church housed in a former movie palace.
The old state museum of New York.

Walking along Broadway so far north, you can see the Hudson/NJ on one side, with Queens on the other because the island is so narrow at that point.

A pretty old church.

By this time, we needed a little pick me up.  Luckily, this guy was selling fresh squeezed orange juice on the sidewalk!
Just what we needed to continue our journey.

More to come...

  1. I can't believe that little peanut of a house is in Manhattan. I love the corn, in Mexico they plant it on the side of the road for good luck. : )
