New York Jewels

Gantry Plaza State Park

"The city always seemed alive to me, a great, jagged dragon sitting on its jewels—the unexpected alley garden on the Upper West Side, welcoming you to sit and rest; the homeless man on Madison Avenue who offered critiques of your outfits for five bucksthe brownstone on East Eighty-first street where no one lived, but which could be accessed by the garden door, so you could wander the empty rooms as if you owned the place. "
