"Another way in"

86th seems a little redundant to me seeing as there is also a transverse road at 85th, but I guess it doesn't seem that way to the rest of the New Yorkers because there are always people on it. This transverse road is the best for getting to the resevoir and the Old Croton Aqueduct trail. Before the park was a park, it used to be a massive resevoir with an aqueduct wall leading to it. A lot of this wall still remains around 86th and it's a pretty cool little trail. It looks old timey like castle / moat old timey which I like. And, this far north in the park tends to be much quieter than the southern parts, so if you want a peaceful day with as little city noise as possible, this is a good road to take to get into the park and branch out.
