Good Morning

Good Morning, originally uploaded by margotwood.
Yesterday I braved 29 degree weather to go on a 70 block "hike" through Manhattan's Upper West Side. By accidentally getting on the express B train, my good college buddy Max and I began our journey in Harlem at 125th Street. (To put that in perspective, I used to live on 7th Street...)

We ventured south and cut West so we could walk through Morninside Park, which I had never been to before.

Even though it was brisk, it was very sunny out and this park, if you ever have a chance to visit, is beautiful. The park has been around since the late 1880s, and it is littered with these beautiful stone staircases all throughout.

This shot was at the very top at one of those stairs looking south. As my friend Steven Siegel points out, this photo is somewhat reminiscent of the endless circular stairways of M.C. Escher. (Even with all my AP art history training, I still had to Google it, so don't feel bad if you click the link.)

    Love love LOVE this shot. And major props for hiking that far, geez.
