Walking across New York City, the Halloween edition !

A few days ago, I went for a walk in the East Bronx.
I took a ferry from Wall Street to Soundview, then I walked from the ferry terminal to St Lawrence Avenue subway station (a few miles walk), across very suburban neighborhoods with Halloween-decorated homes.

612- The apparently new neighborhood around the Soundview ferry terminal is very bland :


613-


614- But you get some good views of Manhattan skyline from a distance (with Rikers Island prison in the middle ground) :


615-


616-


617- The Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges, linking the Bronx to Queens :



618- Planes landing at La Guardia airport fly very low above the neighborhood :


619- Streets are rather empty :


620-


621- Manhattan skyline seen from the little swampy Harding Park :


622-


623-


624-


625-


626-


627-


628-

You're probably the first French tourist in history who has ended up in Soundview.

Heck, I've explored all over the Bronx, and never bothered with Soundview, because it's too isolated and not really urban. Good shots, though.

The East Bronx is more like Outer Queens than the rest of the Bronx. Almost none of the midrise 1930's buildings typical of the Bronx. Poorer and more Latino/Black in the SE corner, and more Italian/Albanian/Irish in the NE corner.

Actually if it wasn't for the new ferry route linking Manhattan to Soundview, I wouldn't probably have explored this part of the Bronx.
Very suburban indeed, and somewhat isolated from the rest of the city.
But I also like to venture in the more outskirtish parts of a city.

We were like half a dozen to get off at Soundview, and there was even less people who got on.
But it was a Sunday, maybe there are more people using this ferry route on a weekday.
