Back to back
Riverside Park stroll - June 2008 - 116
These pictures were taken during a three hour stroll on a warm, pleasant Sunday afternoon at the beginning of June 2008. I started at 97th St, walked north to the end of the "upper" part of Riverside Park, and then back to 96th St, where there's an underpass below the West Side Highway. I then walked south, past the 79th St. Boat Basin, past the place on 72nd Street where you can rent kayaks, and out to the end of the pier that extends into the Hudson River around 67th St.
This was an interesting tableau: a couple leaning together, back-to-back, engrossed in their reading. A guy sitting at a park bench behind them, typing away on his laptop (which looks like a Dell machine, not a Mac) And a girl playing paddle ball with her mother on the right side of the photo...
