Profile

General George Washington set up camp here during the Revolutionary War. (At 265 feet above sea level, it’s the highest point of land in Manhattan.) Now it’s a playground with colorful swings and a jungle gym, and a lunch spot, thanks to ample bench space. When the weather’s nice, you might see local schoolchildren on recess and maybe a bake sale in progress.
