The Bushman steps in New York City are an artifact of baseball history. Built about 1912 just west of Coogan's Bluff on the border between the Manhattan neighborhoods of Sugar Hill Harlem and Washington Heights, this stairwell took people from the subway to the ticket booths of the Polo Grounds. A second staircase, the John T. Brush Stairway, carried fans the rest of the way down the bluff to the stadium.
They are located on West 157th Street, between St Nicholas Avenue and Edgecombe Avenue.
The New York Parks Department does not know who the name Bushman refers to.
