"The views aren't too shabby, either."
from: https://www.brickunderground.com/blog/2015/12/grand_concourse_bronx

"When Louis Aloys Risse was searching for a locale to build out his grand boulevard, he ended up in this section of the Bronx after spotting a lengthy ridge that ran through the area. “He thought the ridge would be perfect because it had such a high elevation,” explains García Conde. “Today you have views across The Bronx.”

We note: 7N includes views to adjacent neighborhoods like Highbridge and University Heights, Washington Heights, New Jersey, Coogan's Bluff (site of the old Polo Grounds), Harlem, and midtown Manhattan.

"After deciding to build along this “magnificent ridge,” as Risse called it, he wrote: ''It would be a sacrilege against nature to disturb,” according to the New York Times. That’s why he abandoned the usual rectangular block system found throughout New York, leaving the Grand Concourse with fewer intersections than usual. At the time of construction, Risse realized a bridge had to be constructed to traverse a valley that cut through the ridge at 174th Street."

We note: Risse cut such a bridge and underpass at 161st Street, too. Lou Gehrig Park sits on top of that underpass.

"A stone masonry bridge was erected, cutting through existing farmland in the area. The bridge was demolished during the construction of the Cross Bronx Expressway, which opened in 1972. The concourse still has a number of underpasses that Risse designed to facilitate traffic at intersections for horses, carts and wagons; today they accommodate cars driving through."

Joyce Kilmer Park is a revelation in all seasons.

Close-up of the Lorelei Fountain Statue. ´┐╝This statue, also known as the Heinrich Heine Memorial, is a white marble fountain dedicated to the memory of the German poet and writer Heinrich Heine. Heine had once written a poem devoted to the Lorelei, a water spirit much like a mermaid, associated with the Lorelei rock in St. Goarshausen, Germany. The monument was originally to be placed in Heine's hometown of Düsseldorf, but antisemitism and nationalist propaganda in the German Empire precluded the completion of the monument on Heine's 100th birthday in 1897. Instead, it was unveiled on July 8, 1899 in the presence of the sculptor, Ernst Herter, in The Bronx. Originally slated for placement in the Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, it was eventually sited in the north end of Joyce Kilmer Park. But after years of neglect, it was restored and re-sited at the south end of the park, perfect for viewing from Apartment 7N.
