Taken from a subway car at 125th Street and Broadway. The train comes out of the tunnel to pass over the valley below Harlem Heights. The Hudson River is visible in the distance under the elevated West Side Highway. During the war for American independence the battle of Harlem Heights was fought here, one of the few victories for Washington who had secured the heights, as the Americans were routed from Manhattan.
