Geocache Description:

I have hidden a cache in New York City. I think this is the first one, and I am hoping to get more folks to hide more around NYC so we can have a kind of internal NYC geocaching game. NYC is a great place to play this game, lots of corners and hidden places to hide things. New York city also seems to provide special difficulty since tall buildings make it hard to get the needed skyview. I have hidden a small plastic box with some small toys in the northern section of Riverside Park. It is hidden in the crux of 4 medium size trees, covered in bark with two sticks forming an "X". I am calling this NYC Alpha cache. Point and follow to:

40.48.75 N 73. 57.89 W

or in seconds

40 48' 58" N 73 57' 29" W

This site has a difficulty of 2, you must walk from the street through a wooded area with some downed trees, some signs of squatters, and a popular dog walking area. It is near a recreation area that is well used. Enter from Riverside Drive somewhere in the 120s, and for safety reasons (very fast cars) do not walk near the 125th street exit ramp.
