    High Bridge

    High Bridge

    The High Bridge, New York City's oldest standing bridge, spans the Harlem River at 173rd Street in Manhattan. It officially closed sometime during the early 1970s -- the Parks Department, mysteriously, isn't certain of the exact date -- but remained open for ranger tours until the late 1990s, when the gates were shut to all but Parks employees after engineers discovered structural flaws.

    Staten Island Greenbelt

    Staten Island Greenbelt

    Before we knew about the Greenbelt, we were looking for the Heyerdahl House, the ruins of an 1800s stone home in Bucks Hollow. Following directions found online, we made our way to a trailhead and proceeded to get lost in the woods. After about an hour of hiking through a forested swamp still wet in late spring, we realized that we didn't need the house. The trails were special enough on their own. Secluded in the woods with nothing but trees in sight or earshot, we were impressed to find a place like this in New York City.

    Hinchliffe Stadium

    Hinchliffe Stadium

    An overgrown access path behind Hinchliffe Stadium leads into what would have been right-center field. The vastness of the U-shaped stadium from that vantage suggests not a baseball or football stadium but a raceway. These ruins tell the story of an era long gone.

    Ridgewood Reservoir

    Ridgewood Reservoir

    Ridgewood Reservoir is one of those places that defies the common imagination of New York City. A lake sits surrounded by reeds and two massive basins, each with its own habitat. Dirt paths lined with iron gates from previous centuries surround the basins, but this all hides within a chain-link fence that cuts off access. The fence is a patchwork in constant development, telling the story of repeated entries with wire cutters. A few people might circle the outer fence's road on foot or bicycle, but for the most part the site is empty.

    Kehila Kedosha Janina

    Kehila Kedosha Janina, tucked between a Chinese merchant and a glass shop in New York's Lower East Side, is the last remaining Romaniote synagogue in the Western Hemisphere.
