Riverside Park New Deal Sites - Photo #121 - Riverside Park 124th Street to 181st Street

Riverside Park: Palisades Playground on Riverside Drive at 148th Street. There is no mention of it in the Parks Department archives, but that's normal; so many playgrounds were built in the West Side Improvment that the press releases mention them only in passing, if at all, without specifics. Names were given to most of them only much later.
