To Exhale in a Metropolis
11 Jul 2010
Hustle and bustle is synonymous with New York City.
It's almost a balancing act trying to maneuver the small piece of sidewalk you're given when walking in Times Square, or even finding a spot on a subway platform.
I spent this past Fourth of July holiday weekend in Manhattan, but in a place where one can exhale and literally smell the roses -- Central Park.
The particular area where I found solace was around The Central Park Loeb Boathouse.
Though it was very hot, temperatures well into the 90s, visitors still explored the lake on row boats. Many gathered near the fountain, and I even witnessed a wedding ceremony.
It was a memorable time.
