Riverbank State Park
This is a picture I took at Riverbank State Park in Harlem. It's a great park and has lots of facilities like baseball fields, a pool and an outdoor ampitheater. It was built on top of a residential waste water treatment facility and is quite a unique place with great views along the Hudson. This is from the parks department website:
Riverbank is the only park of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. Inspired by urban rooftop designs in Japan, this 28-acre multi-level landscaped recreational facility is a state-of-the-art park facility. Rising 69 feet above the Hudson River, Riverbank offers a wide variety of recreational, athletic and arts experiences for all ages, interests and abilities.
P.S. It was from this vantage point that I took the photo looking south along the Hudson in my previous post.
