Hopefully, FDNY doesn't train on these tracks with all the lights on! But isn't this neat? They have their own real (formerly running) Subway car just for training and it's parked in a fake tunnel on Randall's Island!
I did something kind of random last week. I biked to Port Morris in the Bronx. I've been wanting to come to this area for a while to explore a few spots but just never found the time to. As it turns out, with all the new upgrades to the bike paths on the East Side as well as on Randall's Island, biking to Port Morris is pretty easy. I'd even say beautiful as you cross over the multiple bridges to get to The Bronx. And since Port Morris is only parallel to about 125th Street or so, it's really not that far, making this my new preferred route for a decent ride without going too far.
Here are a few photos.
