Day-tripping on the Bloomingdale Road – with its grand vistas, hidden coves, inns, and taverns – was among the most popular pastimes for Manhattan’s riders and drivers. The opening of Central Park only added to the attraction of riding and driving the old roads, and as the city grew, the west side, in particular, became home to some of the most influential riding schools and clubs in the United States.
