    There's a retaining wall on the 59th Street side that you can stand on to watch runners coming off the bridge during the NYC Marathon.

    The worst grocery store in all of Manhattan. Insane product display and organization, lousy selection and overall just a waste of time. Order Fresh Direct if you want to eat.
