Really My Back Yard
On this rainy day, I sit and reflect on my city. People think NYC is all big buildings, dirt and concrete. This is definitely not true. When I walk out of my house, and cross the street, I enter one of the most beautiful parks around (sorry, no names, I don't want to give away where I live.) The park has beautiful trees and paths, both wilderness paths and paved paths for bicycles, running and walking. There is a wonderful playground, picnic tables and ball fields. Hopefully Bloomberg will not lease these fields to his private schools also. I remember watching the kids in my school play baseball on these fields. There are handball courts and tennis courts. Children can take inexpensive tennis lessons here. The park is paradise and it is only across the street from where I live.
