Mary at the edge of an overlook along the Hudson River near Fort Tryon Park at the far north end of Manhattan, with the George Washington Bridge in the background. That's Jersey on the far shore.
Mary and I spent a couple hours walking around the park and the surrounding neighborhoods, checking out what the area looks like. We have heard good things about the area and investigated for potential future place to live. There were some nice looking places and similar prices to what exist here in Union City. The advantage is somewhat shorter commutes and subway connections that run 24 hours a day. Right now, our bus service ends between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m. In an emergency - such as the two we've had since we mvoed here - it's difficult to travel into the city. We could also get more space for our money there. Just something we're considering. It would be hard to walk away from our view, for sure, so who knows. It's nice to learn another neighborhood, no matter what we do.
The photo of Mary above is just a block or two from some of the nicer looking places we saw.
