Jackie Robinson Park and Pool - Photo #87 - Other WPA-improved areas

Jackie Robinson Park: Beyond the last playground, from 153rd to 155th Streets, is a simple stretch of green parkland. Beyond it is the massive Polo Grounds housing complex that replaced the Polo Grounds Stadium in the 1960s. There is no good way to get from there to the rest of Manhattan; 155th Street turns into a staircase so high, it disappears into the vanishing point.
