We moved last month from 181st to 160th Street. Besides unpacking boxes, I’ve been scouting new observing locations. This little plaza at 155 St and Riverside looked perfect: lots of foot traffic, plenty of sidewalk space, and a wonderfully clear view of the sky from south-east to west.
Everything came together last night with a clear sky, a first quarter Moon well-positioned just after sunset, and lots of passersby eager to observe. It doesn’t get much better than this in Manhattan!
Location: 155 St. and Riverside Dr.
