i'm slowly realizing that central park (and all the hundreds of quaint parks in new york city) are what keep the city and its people sane.
green space, or just a place to sit on a bench near a tree is sort of essential for survival, in my opinion.
central park was especially nice on saturday. when all the people were out--- walking, biking, talking, skateboarding, telling jokes, playing songs on guitars, having unusually long picnics.
we (me, ben, linny, randy, donovan) walked from the harlem meer at about 106th street down to 72nd where some friends were having an extended picnic with some other friends. along the way we were distracted by hot dog and ice cream stands, the metropolitan museum of art, protesters and lots and lots of people.
the nearly-end-of-summer in this city is turning out to be pretty darn great.
