Nearby 3573 Bruckner Blvd, Bronx NY.
It appears to be on the sidewalk by the parking lot.
When I saw that both the Saturday and Sunday geohash locations this weekend were in the Bronx, and were furthermore close both to each other and also to stations on the Six Train, I determined to get both of them in one shot.
- On the two train on the way there! Why is this train ALWAYS crowded? -- Elipongo (talk) @40.8198,-73.9010 23:00, 7 December 2013 (EST)
- Off the train and walking the last block -- Elipongo (talk) @40.8520,-73.8273 23:41, 7 December 2013 (EST)
As my real time comments above allude, I took the New York City Subway to the location.
I hopped on the 1 Train at 86th St, then transferred to the 2 Train at 96th St. I detrained at Simpson St and walked the couple blocks to the 6 Train at Hunt's Point Ave (that should be a free transfer, the stations are SO close!) I rode until we reached the end of the line - Pelham Bay Park Terminal Station (Made famous by the novel and Movies The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.)
From there it was a five minute walk to the location. It was on the sidewalk in front of the parking lot of a lovely Greek Orthodox church, and a strangely empty I-95 was right across the street!
It was cold, 30 degrees F with a 10mph North wind. I didn't linger. Besides, I had to get to the nearby Sunday location.

- Addendum: Even though I didn't go to see it, a nearby landmark was quite appropriate for thIs Pearl Harbor Day geohash: The Bronx Victory Column & Memorial Grove - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bronx_Victory_Column_%26_Memorial_Grove
My silly smiling face at the location. @40.8493,-73.8281
Interstate 95 is right across the street @40.8483,-73.8269
The Lovely church right at location @40.8494,-73.8281
Ah there's the name of the church @40.8500,-73.8278
