I recall, City Hall?!?
The more I scour the big apple the more I love it, and the more I appreciate home. The fresh air, the green grass, the open space to breathe, you know it's the land of 10,000 lakes. So it's no surprise N' Yorkers flock to see a little green-to get a taste of what we probably take fore granted. Herds of folks flock to the big mack daddy of parks, Central Park, of course. But who can resist another little gem nestled right in the heart of downtown? It anchors the end of the Brooklyn bridge on one side and the famous Woolworth Building on the other. City hall park is the place to get your face on camera as the local TV stations seem to always be at bay outside the building. In the courtyard an incredible fountain thrusts water and creates THE background for all the "city hall" newly weds. Gas lanterns create a little romance in the sometimes impersonal city. Funny looking camouflage trees flank the perimeters of the green space, "holding" it within one square city block. People perch for a moment, have a Starbucks from any of the surrounding corners, or use one of the benches for a place to catch a nights sleep, after all it's still NYC.
