f'erhaps the highest poiut in the borough of Manhattan is at Ninety-sixth street and Madison avenue. This is where the New York Central Railroad tunnel begins, and from this elevation a fine view is obtained of Harlem to the north and the East river and Long töand to the east. One can look over the roofs of the five-story houses of Harlem elear to Washington Heights and distinguish many points in the borough of the Bronx. From here there is a sharp decline to the East river, and the tall chimney at the foot of East Ninety-fifth street does not look so very high from this altitude. It is altogether a sigkt well worth seeicg.
