A Short Hike Along the Tracks
Isaac Rjavinski, Staff Reporter
Along with many of my fellow Bronx Science students, as a New Yorker, I find myself longing for the chance to ride public transportation again. Because of the coronavirus outbreak across the U.S. and especially in New York State, I find that one of my favorite pastimes of riding the train is no longer possible because of social distancing and people’s concern over being in shared public spaces.
However, in the quiet town of Wassaic in upstate New York, I can still enjoy the ‘scenery’ of the train terminal (at a distance, of course). The town features a walking trail along both former and current train tracks operated as part of the MTA’s Metro North system.
