The Amiable Child monument is one of my favorite locations in all of Riverside Park – and yet, one of the saddest.
To say the last week or so of September was a memorable one is an understatement.
Monday, Sept. 26: Did an interview about Heaven on the Hudson: Mansions, Monuments, and Marvels of Riverside Park with WFUV radio—my first radio interview for the book. Likely airdate: November. And Book Culture, our local bookstore, ran a Q&A with me on their blog.
I love Riverside Park – and Riverside Drive. I love the broad swath of green that serves as my lush and lovely front yard, the glorious view of the Hudson beyond it, the hawks that soar high and mighty past my window. My book, Heaven on the Hudson: Mansions, Monuments, and Marvels of Riverside Park, is a love letter to the neighborhood I call my own.
