Muskrat Cove

This "hidden sliver of woodland" along the Bronx River is rife with lesser celandine, the national flower of the Bronx. There is supposedly a 9/11 memorial grove somewhere in the park, but I didn't notice it.

Bronx River bollards

April 15th, 2013



From the Bronx River Alliance: "Look on the streambanks for the presence of bollards used to tie up barges that held back the [Bronx River] while it was straightened during the modernization of the [Bronx River Parkway]." You can actually spot two more bollards on the far side of the river if you look closely.
