This week we set about enjoying the New York's preeminent Botanical Garden! When we're not wandering the grounds, we'll be covering a lot of Bronx city life as well, hitting the Hudson River coast in North Riverdale all the way down to the tip of Hunts Point and the East River. Not included in this route are 3 miles reserved for daily garden browsing.
Our walk this week traverses the many bridges that connect Manhattan to all parts east. Starting with the Ed Koch/Queensboro bridge, we snake through Randalls Island before systematically tackling the nine bridges that connect Upper Manhattan to the Bronx. Not included in this map due to route revision constraints are both the walk over the Third Avenue Bridge and the 2.5 miles from Henry Hudson Park to the train at 181st Street.
