My boyfriend likes to look at the "New Yorker" cover art

Note: this photo was published in a 2009 Squidoo blog titled "Sunscreen." It was also published in an undated (Aug 2010) blog titled "Is Your SPF 30 Sunscreen Safe?"




This was taken at approximately 82nd Street, along a grassy stretch down by the Hudson River. And yes, it really is the cover of the New Yorker magazine that the man is holding...




I've strolled through Riverside Park on several previous occasions (click here to see a collection of approximately seven other Flickr albums of my Riverside Park photos) -- but even though the sign at the 96th Street entrance is always the same, and the pathway is always the same, the people and the individual vignettes are always different.


Sometimes it's simply a function of the weather: people dress differently, act differently, and engaged in different activities in early spring than they do in summer or late fall. But much of it simply has to do with the incredible variety of people who take advantage of the opportunity to relax, read a book, jog, or picnic with their families.


So ... this just happens to be what it looked like in Riverside Park on the last day of May, in 2009.
