Iwalked New York City’s Riverside Park - I personally think of Riverside Park as Central Park’s bastardized twin in the sense that it is every bit as elegant however, receives none of the same recognition as its peer. Although it is a bit narrower, Riverside Park is longer and stretches for four miles along the Hudson River from West 72nd Street to 158th Street (versus Central Park’s 2.5 mile stretch from 59th Street to 110th).
Overall the park contains three terraced levels including a promenade. These lower levels are perhaps the most frequented due to their trails along the Hudson River. In all, one hundred thirty-four acres of space was added in 1937-1941 based upon designs provided by Gillmore D. Clarke and Clinton Lloyd.
