Emptiest Place

Battery Park (Pexels)

"New York is the only place I know that is surrounded by rivers but isn't defined by them. At the Battery, where the waters connect, you could live a lifetime and not see a heron in flight, a trout on a line. Instead, you've got Hong Kongers in photo flashes. Wealthy ones in tuxes and mammoth bridal gowns, posed before the towers of the World Financial Center, bringing home mementos, replica buildings on chains, the emptiest place on earth."
Larry O'Connor, Penalty Box
