national park(ing) day - all over the city - map it here
As you may have noticed, I am not very good at this blog scheduling thing. I should get on it! I tend to post pictures I just took, instead of being a little smarter and schedule a few posts in advance for those days when life takes over. Ah well...
So here we go: to start the week and this first day of Fall, I am bringing you back to Friday!
PARK N' WRITE - West 103rd St. and West End Ave.
Friday was National Park(ing) Day. I have seen similar initiatives in another blog but I cannot, in the name of Sarah Palin's Caribou TV Dinner, remember where. "Park(ing) Day is an international event that reclaims over 200 parking spots in 50 cities around the world and transforms them into engaging public spaces for one day a year."
In New York City, that meant 50 parking spots throughout our 5 boroughs that turned into human-friendly places for one single day. Above is Park N' Write, the little piece of park created by a couple living on W103rd. They had cookies for the dogs, good books to read on the grass and jazz at 3pm! They even had a guest book, which, as you can see, I gracefully sign.
Happy Monday, everyone!
