A Typical Night and Day in Washington Square Park (Photos)

We're entering the typical days of summer now with warm sunny days leading into pleasant nights, frequented by a rain shower or two. This past Thursday evening was one of the most perfect of summer nights, neither hot nor cold. People assumed their typical roles. Some sat on park benches - either alone, in couples, or in groups. Some walked through the paths. Musicians played music. The chess guys played chess. Visitors wandered through the park to snap pictures of the picturesque arch. On this evening, a young woman frolicked in the fountain. This is also typical.

Early the next morning, just like most mornings in the park, the scene was quiet. It had rained overnight. A fog had rolled in but was quickly clearing. A few people, mostly people walking their dogs, ambled through. The park was again ready for another day. It's not bad here, these typical days of summer. No, not bad at all.
