"Highbridge Park the Best Choice to See"

W. 172nd Street goes from Haven Street to Highbridge Park.

W. 172nd Street resides in the Washington Heights section of the Bronx.

Much of W. 172nd Street is residential buildings, but there are a number of stores as well. But the most often seen part of W. 172nd Street is Highbridge Park.

For a while Highbridge Park was not much to look at. But with the help of the New York Restoration Project, which has been in place since 2000, the park has been going through a restoration process. The park has not been fully restored as there is still much work to do.

But there has been some improvements like the creation of bike paths. Also, in 2008, the Police Officer Michael J. Buczek Little League field opened.
Pros
  • Nice neighborhood park
  • plenty of stores
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer
  • Too many people at times
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Singles
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees
  • Tourists
