Bronx River Professional Review and Guide
"The northernmost put-in on the Bronx River is at Shoelace Park on East 219th Street. The river is very shallow at this point and only about 25 feet wide. It also runs very close to the Bronx River Parkway here, creating a noisy and somewhat distracting environment. This noise will be forgotten after a few paddle strokes, though, as the beauty of the river becomes apparent. Amazingly, almost all signs of apartment buildings and city streets are easily hidden behind silver maple and sycamore trees, some wide enough to be at least 100 years old. You’ll feel as if you’ve left the city altogether."
