Ah, Sunday morning in the park. Or square.

That's Duarte Square, a tiny little park opposite the very short block that McDonald's is on. I'm giving you the above link to Duarte Square so you can read up on Juan Pablo Duarte of Dominican Republican fame. However the statue and the square referred to in the New York City Parks link is downtown between Canal and Grand Streets. I'm here to tell you there's a Duarte Square uptown as well, and it's official, with its own New York City Park sign with maple leaf.

WONDERFUL PHOTO! Love the way those two drunken bottles lie so companiably on that maternal, earthy circle.
