Morningside Park for some Shakespeare

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.
