This ride is part of a series that will acquaint you with the recreational, historic, natural, and cultural resources of Manhattan ‘s highlands. Each ride will attempt to highlight environmental, land use, development and preservation issues referencing particular localities. Every ride will present a different itinerary in order to explore different sites.
