Central Park - New York

Having spent less than 24 hours in Manhattan (more specifically just Southwest of Central Park), I feel qualified to make some observations about the Big Apple (wink). In no particular order

  • Residents there must make tons of money because,
    • they are wearing some obviously stylish get-ups
    • everything costs a gazillion dollars plus tax
  • Female residents must have genetically modified feet because they have to walk forever on stiletto heels
  • Central Park is quite a happening place on a Saturday afternoon. One might run into sunbathers, bocci ball players, a man wheeling a bass, a minstrel show, and a napper under every tree
  • Residents must not have much fear of heights as I saw individuals leaning on balcony railings some 30 floors up
  • Vendors work VERY hard
  • Pigeons are afraid of nothing
  • The lights are well-timed so you can travel pretty quickly (on a Saturday in the Summer) up and down the Island
  • It is a good place to visit, not so good to live!
