Squirrel Alley and Riverview Place
The squirrel at the entrance of the path to Riverview Place is the work of sculptor Raffaele Menconi (1877-1942), who also made the aluminum eagle for the Municipal Building and whose decorated Tuscan villas is on the left side of the walk. The distinctive hexagonal asphalt blocks on the pathway and many of the sidewalks of Riverview Place (pictured here around 1900) were made at the smoky Hastings Pavement Company (informally called the Fog Works) and can also be found on the walks of Central park in Manhattan.
La ardilla a la entrada del camino a Riverview Place es una obra del escultor Raffaele Menconi (1877-1942), quien también hizo el águilla de aluminio la villa toscana que e encuentra al lado izquierdo del camino. Los inconfundibles adoquines exagonales en la calle peatonal y en muchas de las aceras de Riverview Place (fotografiados aquí en 1900) fueron hechos en la hueante Compañía de Pavimento Fog Works de Hastings, los mismos que también pueden ser encontrados en los senderos del Parque
