Washington Square Park

What’s not to love about springtime in the Village? Washington Square Park is looking fine.

Washington Square Park looks better than ever, much better than when I attended NYU. Tulips bloom.
Caffe Reggio
There’s cappuccino at the cafe.
This is inside Caffe Reggio, an 80-year old cafe on MacDougal Street.

And it’s a perfect day to hang out, read, or play chess in the park.

Easter Parade

For the first time in my 30 years of living in NYC, I went to the Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue. I wanted to see the pretty hats and dressy pups, but there were also magicians and street dancers and ice cream vendors. So fricken’ fun. So free.

Fifth Avenue was closed today, Easter Sunday afternoon, just so we could stroll — to see and be seen.
