Inwood, 207th Street Between Ninth Avenue and the Harlem River

My notes say this is 207th Street, but something's not making sense. I'll check it next time I'm over there, but for now let's just say it's the end of, well, it's the end of something, that's for sure.

That leaning pink post is what made me do it. You can see that, right? The whole thing reminds me of paintings by Carroll Dunham.

To the right is the entrance to the University Heights Bridge, which 207th Street leads into. See the problem?

Carroll Dunham? Well, the color, anyway. I find this photo very moving and evocative of my memories of being young in Brooklyn (although my neighborhood wasn't quite so desolate - not at all, actually). But my interior landscape...another story.
