Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx, NYC
Joseph Rodman Drake 1795-1820 wrote a love poem to the Bronx. (Here is the first stanza)
Skirting the smooth edge of a gentle river,
Whose waters seemed unwillingly to glide,
Like parting friends who linger while they sever;
Enforced to go, yet seeming still unready,
Backward they wind their way in many a wistful eddy.
