Ascent Trip Report

Quick visit after registering daughter for NYC Marathon which was the next day.

Small park, meaningless to highpointers. Doesn't even deserve to be a NM but I risk being called racist because of that, I'm sure. Should be a city park, or a national historic site.

It is of course impossible to figure out where the original natural HP actually is, it having been dug up, people buried, re-dug up when the graveyard was forgotten and rediscovered when excavation went more than ten feet down when a big building was to have been built at the site.
