The Dawn Jogger has been so many places today, she’s not sure exactly where she was when the “East Coast” earthquake hit. But she thinks she may have been taking a photo of the public art that is scattered around the 14th St. subway station. There are a couple a dozen whimsical bronze “people” at this station, quite a surprise when getting off the train.
She and her walking companion were on their way to the High Line, a fabulous elevated walkway that stretches for a little over a mile from 12th and Gansevoort to 30th and 10th Ave. When they emerged from the subway station, a guy with a video camera asked “Did you feel the quake?” Negative, and not really surprising, once she learned the facts that the 5.9 magnitude (a real jolt if truly local) was centered near Richmond, VA. To listen to the cell phone chatter along the High Line you would have thought the world was about to end.
Back to important things like the weather, which remains truly marvelous. Only sensible to take full advantage today. Walk around Central Park and the Central Park Zoo (she couldn’t help but think of the male DJ when she say the penguins). Lunch rootop (23rd floor) over looking midtown. Then down to the High Line. And tonight a Yankees game!
