One thing that I thought I was going to miss most about Atlanta was the greenery and park space. I lived in Inman Park, frequented Piedmont Park, and ran on freedom park. I took it for granted. As a tourist I thought the greenspace was severely lacking in NYC; however as a resident I've realized if you want green space, you have many options. There is, of course Central Park, Riverside Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, community gardens in the East Village, etc etc.
The inspiration for this post came while listening to an old Blur cd and Parklife came on. It is a pretty cool song and for those interested you can hear it here: blur: parklife video.
One of my favorite quotes from the song is: 'Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur of what is known as parklife'
here's to parklife...
