Hudson River Park and Beyond!
Paul Allison loves to stay connected with the Hudson River. He runs and bikes this path as often as possible. You can walk, ride, or run the entire west side of Manhattan, right next to our wonderful estuary.<br /><br />Here's how one of my ninth graders described the Hudson River:<br /><br />The place where I liked the most is not the school, not the subway station, nor the buildings. I like the Hudson River. When you are in New York City, you are most tired of tall skyscrapers and larger group of people. Tell me where you can't find these? In the park there are a lot of people; in street a lot of tall skyscrapers, then where? Only the place where people ignore the most, the Hudson River is the place. Calm peaceful water, smooth linear waves. Sometimes imagine the time, when Europeans hadn't discovered the city, what was it like? I soon give up because that ruins the calmness of the environment. There must have been a lot of Indians in the river hunting for food, just like the now a lot of people, that makes me sad a place that used to be the most popular site now becomes a place that people ignore the most. If you live in big apple, you have to know this site. Traveling in subways, you can see this place. Flying in helicopter can show it too. Even the river isn't as clear as it used to be like very big cities in the world, infected by industrial wastes. The place where you can really find out about big apple is this river. The river tells about it's past, the riverbank tells about the present world of modern New York. The place where many historical events took place, when Henry Hudson’s ship first sailed into the river, and well... there are just are too many of them.
