I had a last minute trip into the city to help with the last performance of Romeo and Juliet I had worked on earlier in the summer. They were now performing in Morningside Park, so I had to head up there. I had never actually been in the park itself, just walked by it a few times to get to other places (St. John the Divine, Columbia University, etc). So I got to take a bit of a walk through the southern section of it on a bright sunny day.
Arriving at the southeast entrance of the park.
Down the steps we go.
Less steps than Bethesda Terrace.
St. John the Divine overlooks the ball fields.
The bathrooms are locked.
A scenic pond in the park.
A black crane in the pond.
Cats hunt along the pond.
Turtles along the pond.
That’s a lot of turtles.
Viewing the pond from the north.
A shady staircase and a sculpture.
This is also a water fountain.
The stairs on their own.
The street lamps are nicely designed in this area.
The white crane arrives.
Ok, fine, I won’t land there.
Surveying his domain.
Watching the show from the trees.
A cat is hunting the crane.
Next week: A walk along the Hudson River in Hoboken.
