Hidden in plain sight: the Seaman-Drake Arch!

    Wow! I used to pass by this every day and had no idea what it was or the significance of it. Thanks Matt! I’m learning so much about my own city from following your walk. You also had me exploring the immediate area on Google Maps and I see that there are a couple of single family houses on West 217th street and Park Terrace West. You don’t see too many single family detached houses in Manhattan!! According to your map, you haven’t passed that spot yet, but hopefully soon :-)

    I hope somebody restores the arch and may it be recognized as a historic landmark or something. It looks grand and imposing in the pic on your link.
