In the pause: Summer Streets 2017

A more hopeful Saturday today than last week. Phin and I enjoyed Summer Streets yesterday as our morning walk. For three Saturdays in August, the city closes Park Ave to cars from 72nd Street to the Brooklyn Bridge so that pedestrians, bicyclists, and their pooches can enjoy that stretch of the city traffic free.The quiet is comforting as New Yorkers of all shapes and sizes enjoy our city from different vantage points than we normally have.

Phin and I started at 60th Street and walked down to 34th. Then he decided to close out the walk by hanging a right to Fifth Avenue, marching up the steps of the New York Public Library like he owned it, and then over to Times Square. I guess he wanted to see if those neon lights really are bright on Broadway. (And they are!)
