Central Park

It's spring time in the Park, which apparently means 'STAY OFF THE GRASS!' The entire place was fenced off by heavy plastic fencing. Certain areas had operating hours posted. During about 2 hours a day you could walk on certain parts of the Park's grass. I'm told this is not how the park is year round.

We hit the Carousel, which must normally be in high demand. There wasn't much of a line when we arrived. However the Carousel spins at such a ridiculous rate, I must conclude that the operators have to pump those kids through. Seriously, you need a helmet.

The playground at the south end of the Park is awesome. It's a massive complex of swings, sand, and slides. In the back corner is a concrete castle that backs up to some natural rock formations. After being chased over the walls we ran directly up the rocks. It's lots of fun, but one needs to be of an advanced age to avoid cranium crackage.

Thank you for the advance warning--my monkey rock-climbing girl will never be visiting Central Park. I will diligently continue trying with all my might to completely defer Nora's rock climbing abilities and hope to instill in her an intense fear of heights.

You know what they say, the harder you push, the harder your kids push back.
