"Yankees on the horizon"
River avenue is an interesting avenue in the Bronx for a variety of reasons. While it allows quick access to Harlem and 149th street at one end, this road also runs right into the old Yankee Stadium! While you can continue past the new stadium, I prefer to make a right turn, pass the old stadium, watch the construction (or deconstruction) and hang a right onto Sedgwick. I avoid a great deal of traffic on the Major Deegan by driving parallel to it. Being in a large city there are a variety of commercial enterprises along this lengthy road. Some places include car repair, warehouses, old New York markets, delis, and a long string of Yankees memorabilia and sports bars.
