Northern Manhattan / Washington Heights

Unable to travel or socialize as in my normal real life .  Took a "field trip" down to the newly opened Whitney Museum for members only preview (opens to public September 3 - must go online for ticketed entrance).  Great to be in a stimulating environment after  7 months of total lockdown.  Nestled at the entrance to the Highline and boarded on the west by the Hudson River - beautiful views.  Some street closures for walkers and many restaurants serving outdoor dining. Highly recommend the  new installation of Mexican Muralist on 5th floor.




Part 2, coming next - The Metropolitan Museum now open to the public.

Discovering Inwood Park

North of Washington Heights - the Last Neighborhood in Northern Manhattan

Hiking through ancient woodlands, some steep hills, towering trees, dense foliage. Only slightly cleared for safety and trails marked for directions (disclaimer - I'm not an expert in photographing this landscape).
Ended up where Manhattan and the Bronx are separated by the Spuyten Duyvil waterway. Nice surprise was Gail Brewer, the Borough President of Manhattan and the traveling Philharmonic Wagon - enjoyed some 20 minutes of beautiful music.
