My neighborhood in New York might not be the most exciting area (several people have openly shamed me for living here) but the proximity to Central Park is pretty amazing. One of the benefits of working from home is that, provided I don’t have any meetings I’m able to take a break when I want to during the day, usually around lunch time, and just walk over to the park.
I’ve done that nearly every day for the last week and although one day I managed to get caught in an absolutely brutal down pour that ruined my favorite pair of blue ballet flats the park has generally been one of my favorite places to go. Even when it’s crowded it still seems like a bit of an oasis from the city which is nice because although I’ve lived in Chicago for years New York does have a bit more or a hard edged feel.
PS-I didn’t see a sign-does anyone know what that obelisk is for?
