Upper West Side, 71st Street Between Broadway and West End Avenue

I finally got out of the house at 4:00 today and took the subway down to 72nd Street. I planned to walk 71st Street to its west end and then take West End Avenue downtown – then over 66th Street to Broadway and Barnes & Noble. However, it was colder today than you might think, especially if you walk really slowly and your shutter hand is ungloved and then you get close to the river and the wind is practically knocking you over. So I just walked back to 72nd and took the subway downtown. Yes, one stop. I was frozen.

I entered this little park, just off 71st Street, through the service entrance, luckily open. I'd love to come back in the spring when those trees bloom.

Spring. Not so far off.

I can hear the trees and bushes softly singing - yes we are ready for spring, ready for spring, ready for spring....
