The hanging gardens of Alexander Avenue cling to the northern face of the Major Deegan overpass between 134th and 135th streets, just south of “Doctor’s Row”. This stretch of Alexander Avenue became known for the comparative wealth of the residents there and the opulence of their brownstone homes.
In this relatively recent satellite photo our ClockTower is on the far left and the overpass is on the far right.
Today, the underpass is little more than rain protected parking and shelter from the sun on a hot day.
It’s cool under there.
