Since I moved to New York a few months ago, my legs have been getting a workout for sure. I estimate that I have walked 500 or so city blocks by now in my treks, playing tourist. Of note so far, I’ve marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, visited the Bronx Zoo, seen the Jeff Koons Exhibit at the Whitney, and spent a lot of time exploring Central Park. I find New York absolutely fascinating, even just sitting on a park bench.
Last weekend was another beautiful one in New York, in a summer that has been milder than expected, sending droves of people out to Central Park for some fun outside. In a city with more than 8 million stories to tell, here, perhaps, are a few more, as I took a short rest to listen to some jazz courtesy of some of New York’s fine street musicians.
