Seeing Stripes

Decided to take a trip to Riverside Park in West Harlem along the Hudson River.
This park is so beautiful and has all kind of hidden trails and architecture.

 I discovered this beautiful staircase that leads down to an old abandoned train track that once ran on the West Side of the City.

This old fountain is amazing!

                                               On a brige over the abandoned train tracks.

Dress: Forever 21
Jacket: H&M see in another post Leather and Lace HERE!
Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Hat: Forever 21
Shoes: ASOS

Riverside Park on the West Side of NYC is one of my favorite places to jog and relax and people watch.
Its so beautiful especially with the Hudson River and the Fall leaves.

Whats your favorite place to take in the scenary and relax???
