Did you wake up this morning and said, “I am going to have an awesome adventure.” I did and made a list of places I wanted to see. But, I needed to finish my goal:
Touch all 5 boroughs of New York City.
I already did 4 of them and now I was on train to complete my final borough, The Bronx. I touchdown on Grand Concourse station. I walked around and noticed that it was more industrial than other boroughs.
My girlfriend told me that each borough carries their own personality. This idea surprised me. I visualized New York City as Voltron. Each borough connection was different. I wondered which part each borough played? I assumed Manhattan was the body and head. I found out most New Yorkers consider Manhattan as New York City. That was interesting.
We started at the north end of Central Park in Harlem and began our exploration. There are a lot of movies that filmed in New York City that always have a central park scene. The Central Park architects actually made another park in the Brooklyn area called Prospect Park.
It was interesting to discover that the Central Park architects like Prospect Park more because they were able to correct any design flaws they found in Central Park.
So, even their most famous and popular design is not their favorite. That make me wonder if the painting of the Mona Lisa is Leonard de Vinci’s favorite work of art?
