Riverside Park

These photos were taken in Riverside Park, Morningside Heights, New York. Kerouac often sat here and dreamed about his adventures at sea. Riverside Park was also the scene of the David Kammerer murder by Lucien Carr, which had some rather drastic effects on Kerouac’s life, although he didn’t play a part in the actual murder itself.
