Lost World Resurfaces in Riverside Park: Friday Ark #282

A recent walk led to an astonishing discovery, further evidence of the Lost World of Riverside Park.

Esau's Discovery

The beast was completely hidden at the base of a tree, high on a slope below the retaining wall near 112th Street.

So now we wonder … do elephants nest in the retaining wall?
