Fun in the sun SUNDAY in Central Park

Sundays in Central Park are always a delight……..New Yorkers and tourists……….all “doing their thing”…..or trying to “out do” one another.  Sunning……boating……..running……..bicycling…………reading……eating…………walking the dog………..and slumming.

IT IS ALL THE ENTERTAINMENT ONE COULD POSSIBLY ASK FOR.

Tonight on the great lawn is Movie Time!  HORROR!  THE SHINING.  Thousands will gather for a picnic………wine and fine dine for some.  Others will just bring buckets of popcorn.  It is a warm night…..the stars will be out…….and New Yorkers will get free entertainment.  How great is that!

SUMMER in the SUBWAY……..Wild and HOT!

New York SUBWAYS in the summer……..you could die of  heat down there.

But nearly SIX MILLION ride them each day.  Thats over a BILLION and a HALF riders each year.

You’ll smell a lot of  SWEAT and see [or shed] a few TEARS.  Some MUSICIANS. A few RATS……lots of TRASH………a bit of ART and lots of screaming BRATS [just turn up your IPOD!]

 

Those who can’t take the heat………….take the bus………..and miss all the fun!
