Walking Around Waiting Uptown

Unlike, say, the last eight, not much happened this weekend as far as concert attendance. But as the last few days of September slipped by, I finally did make it up the Central Park, albeit the long way. It reads a bit like a tourist itinerary, but it was definitely a worthwhile experience. We walked up from Union Square (well, 14th Street and Irving Place) to the Empire State Building, then over to Times Square and finally up to the park. Although we only pierced the outer fringe of it, Central Park lives up to its reputation; the place is huge! There's something really surreal about hitting this giant nature sanctuary, and still being able to see skyscrapers peeking over the tops of the trees. It is, however, probably a little more welcoming in the day, and we soon made our way down an impressive Fifth Avenue to an even more impressive Rockefeller Center, and the incredibly idealistic plaque is now (for the time being) the banner of yours truly. It took me almost a year and a half, but I finally got something up top!

So, a really nice conclusion to a fantastic September, which I'm surely going to revisit with a bunch of features coming up. October might be even better, with CMJ and all, but we'll have to wait and see.

That's one of my favorite things to do as well-- walking the length of Manhattan with friends.
