Taking advantage of the crisp autumn weather, we headed up to 106th Street. Along the way, we spotted a film crew shooting a car scene for HBO’s upcoming pilot “How To Make It In America.”
After catching a glimpse of the sunflowers in full bloom at Central Park’s Conservatory Garden, Tiff and I made our way into the park and ended up stumbling onto a Halloween party for kids that featured music provided by Natalia Paruz, a.k.a “The Saw Lady,” whose unique repertoire also includes English handbells and the glass harp.
As we took in the fall foliage and passersby of all ages, we were in awe of the park’s bucolic charm. Like Tiffany said, it almost makes you forget you’re in the city. And it reminds you of another great thing about NYC -- the quiet respites from the hustle and bustle to be found without venturing too far from your own zip code.
