Scenes from a day that included eights hours of walking, purple flowers, piña colada for lunch, the MOMA (but no Rain Room), a Greek salad in Morningside that marked the day's first sit-down, and dessert outdoors at the Hungarian Pastry Shop. It was relaxing and tiring in a way that's sometimes good to experience.
For some reason, my Carl Schurz Park post has remained one of my most popular blog posts. I first found the park after wandering the Upper East Side in late winter/early spring with my Olympus Fe camera, and declared it my favorite in the entire City. Having spent time in the summer in Central Park, I'm not sure now whether "Carl Schurz" is my favorite or second favorite, or whether it's tied for first, but it is certainly worth documenting more properly here. It's difficult for me to visit when the sunlight is best, because the park is so far from where live, but I believe these photos do it more justice.
