We Were Here Geocache - Morris Park, The Bronx, USA

This cache is hidden in the Pehlam Parkway Greenway, a very popular park area that is bisected by the Bronx and Pehlam Parkway. The Terrain is flat and very close to public transportation. The area, depending upon the ground may not be accessible via wheelchair



Now that we are preparing to move out of the Bronx, SR has decided that she wants to place a cache in commemoration of the few months that we have lived here. So, we have created the "We were here geocache" - Morris Park, The Bronx, USA. It is a micro cache, consisting of a log book, a business card sized stash note, and business card sized finders certificates and a small log book. This is not a traditional cache in the sense that you take something and leave something. There is no room to take or leave something (except for Where's George dollars). All we ask is that you sign the log and take a certificate of achievement/ finders certificate (one per team, please!). Also included in the cache are a few of our new signature items, the "I Love to Geocache NY" refrigerator magnets. please one per person/team (while supplies last - we will replace as needed).

This cache can easily be visited via the #5 subway line. Its not hard to figure out what stop to get off on. It is only a short walk from the stop.

The location of the cache is the Bronx and Pehlam Greenway, a park that the Bronx and Pehlam Parkway runs through. It is a very popular spot with local folks especially during the summer time. People come here to run, eat, and people watch. The cache location is just a very short walk from our home in the Bronx which we will soon be moving from to other parts of NYC, specifics unknown at this time.

CAUTION: this park is bordered by an active roadway (as are many parks in NYC). Although many people visit this park you still need to take care when crossing the streets. CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUPERVISED!

Parking should be ample on the South side road or on a side street. If you choose to cross the road at a location other then where there is a traffic control device (there are several of these spots along the length of the park) you MUST DO SO CAREFULLY!

Paying attention is important. As always, this is NYC, do not visit this area at night alone.

Some unusual circumstances gave me a day off from work today and in the afternoon I had some time to try a couple of caches, hitting this one first.

Very cute container and in amazingly good condition!

SL, TN, but left a small Patriot National Bank keychain (it actually fit in the cache pretty well).

BTW, if you get a chance, you should definitely see the famous "Christmas house" mentioned in an earlier log. You can learn about it at www.garabedianchristmashouse.com

#1376 Parked nearby and walked over to the cache where it was an easy find exactly where I thought it would be. Pretended to drop something when I put the cache back but I don't think anyone noticed or cared what I was doing. Thanks.
