The Rusty Gantry
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This part of the Big Apple once served as the New York Central Railroad yard and was the primary departure and receiving area for barges loaded with freight.
Now the area serves the citizens of New York as a wonderful park and recreation area.
Although it is a relatively new area, the historical use for this waterfront is pervasive. With its winding manner, the walkway path evokes the feel of long lost railroad tracks. Several abandoned ramps and piers, as well as “the rusting gantry”, remain as a reminder of times and technologies past.
As for the name of my cache: A gantry is a crane used to lift objects by a hoist, which is fitted in a trolley and can move horizontally on a rail fitted under a beam.
Warning: There are often muggles about – walking dogs, exercising or just taking in the views from the park. The key here is subtle examination of the area.
And finally, no matter what your GPS reads, the cache is not in the river. You can grab the cache from the walkway.
