I doubt the title of today's block could be any more convoluted.
Running along the river and an elevated segment of the FDR drive, this block of South Street is mostly just a back yard for the Al Smith house's megablock to the north. If you venture across the street and under the viaduct you'll be presented with some rather nice views of Brooklyn, and the bridges. Unfortunately this isn't the "fun" part of South Street- that's a few blocks past the Brooklyn Bridge. But if you're like me, that means you'll appreciate the lighter crowds and comparable views.
I'm particularly fond of the elevated roadway here – I think there's a certain industrial beauty (similar to the High Line) the way it snakes along the riverfront.
