Morning Walk #84 - Stuyvesant Square Park
71 degrees, 89% humidity, and another gray day
Two guys not yet home from a night of celebrating
Walking through the streets and absorbing more history
Stuyvesant Square Park is mostly deserted at first

A father, a toddler & a St. Bernard. The little girl with a pacifier in her mouth walks around on tip toes carrying a sweater in one hand and a stick her height in the other.
Squirrels gathering acorns
More people waling through the park to work and to school
Taking photos of the ironwork fences.
A park employee hurries over to try to straighten the park sign for my photo shoot. I didn't have the heart to tell her I wasn't interested in the sign.
Interesting plaque on the house at 122 E 17th Street says it was the home of the writer, Washington Irving. I had earlier read that Washington Irving never lived in the area that was named after him. His nephew lived at 120 E 17th Street and named his son, Washington Irving, but that still doesn't quite explain the expensive inaccurate plaque.
