City Island Images went out on a leisurely stroll throughout New York City largest recreation area this morning. Pelham Bay Park is more than three times the size of Manhattan's Central Park, Pelham Bay Park is the City's largest park.
Visitors to the park enjoy miles of bridle paths and hiking trails, Orchard Beach, the Bartow-Pell Mansion, two golf courses, and a breathtaking 13-mile saltwater shoreline that hugs Long Island Sound. Athletes frequent its numerous fields and courts while children frolic in its playgrounds. Pelham Bay Park also has a wide and diverse range of plant and animal life and features prime locations to view mother nature's beauty right here in NYC.
City Island Images found many people walking, jogging, riding bicycles, some were working out, while others were just relaxing, However, everyone we spoke with had one thing on their mind. They all made comments about the increasing amount of garbage that pigs, aka some slobs, aka inconsiderate people leave behind. Most do not even have the courtesy of using the many trash cans that are scattered all over the park.
Anyone who walks a mile or two has passed through the area which was inhabited by the Siwanoy Indians, by Ann Hutchinson, and where the Continental Army marched. They all kept it cleaner than some of the people who leave used diapers on the ground, next to a trash can, or who leave cigarette buts or aluminum cans and many other pieces of trash that belong in a nearby garbage can and nowhere else.
Visit Pelham Bay Park today, but please leave it clean when you go away!
