|Fort Tryon Park in Manhattan, NYC Photos Gallery - Page 1|
|At the entrance to Fort Tryon Park is Heather Garden filled with all sorts of floral arrangements, herbs and plants. The park itself is located at and around the 190th Street area of Manhattan along the edge of the Hudson River.||Much like Wave Hill in the Bronx, this area has its history as well as it's fantastic scenic views of the Hudson River and the New Jersey Palisades. To the south of the park is the George Washington Bridge spanning the Hudson River and onto NJ.|
|Our flag flies high at this one location. This park was named by the British after Sir William Tryon, Major General and the last British governor of the 'then' colonial New York.||
With excellent strategic posts throughout the area, this fort served against the British during our American Revolution. Certainly, the Hudson River was of huge military and commercial importance to both sides of the war. Of course in modern years, guess who would end up assisting in the redevelopment of this land? The Olmsted firm of course. That famous family name well known for many of NYC's precious greening.
