A beautiful sunny Sunday morning in Van Cortlandt Park, a natural gem in the northern Bronx.
These NYPD mounted cops posed readily for a picture, unlike most other cops and city employees, who are institutionally camera-shy.
The Van Cortlandt House Museum is the oldest building in The Bronx, built in the Georgian style by Frederick Van Cortlandt The two-plus story Georgian house was built in 1748 of dressed fieldstone. The house was used during the Revolutionary War by Rochambeau, Lafayette, and Washington.
The old Putnam railroad runs through the park, and is now a hiking trail. Above is the forlorn steel skeleton of a station.
