"Harlem River? The Drive!"
Frankly I am quite surprised that no one has reviewd Harlem River drive before! This is a very large road, a mojor artery through to Harlem and the Bronx. While the Harlem River water isn't so beutiful, the river adds some scenerey to the area. There are several bridges to cross between Manhattan island and the Bronx mainland including the ever popular Willis avenue bridge and the 3rd avenue bridge. The 3rd ave bridge is important becauase it is FREE to cross! Also it is a smaller bridge and therefore less traffic. Harlem River drive lets you cruise down the east side watching both Yankee stadiums and in the morning on my way to work I watch college rowing teams practicing against a sun lit city. Very nice, very useful, I recommend it!
