GAY PRIDE PARADE • nyc 2015 • It was a HOOT and a HOLLER………

Everybody had FUN…………..2 million showed up to watch and cheer at todays GAY PRIDE PARADE here in New York.  LOVE was everywhere.

SUNNY MONDAY in Central Park

It was such a glorious day in Central Park today. Weddings……….entertainers………..horse and buggy rides………..groups of school  kids and I spotted two Fabergé Eggs at the Boat House.  260 of these eggs have been “hidden” around the park.  The sale of the eggs will benefit art education for New York City’s children.

SUNNY Sunday in Central Park

Central Park had it’s first real taste of Spring today…………sunny but cool………fun was in the air.  Me and thousands of my fellow New Yorkers played in the park.  Bubble blowing………roller skating………..dancing………making music………[some were making love]………walking the dog and picnicking.

And of course, there was a wedding or two.

John Lennon was seen in Strawberry Fields……………on a TEE SHIRT

 Carts for Marathon Officials………still and silent……never used.

From my terrace I could look down to the lake……..and the boaters.

Central Park …………so serene………..unaware that the big “Noreaster” storm is on it’s way on Wednesday.
