If you're in New York right now and you need to do some work online and you can leave the office, check out this place. I'm in the Shakespeare Garden, just up the steps from the location of this picture. Belvedere Castle is to my right and up another small flight of stairs. The Delacorte Theatre, home to the New York Public Theater Shakespeare in the Park, is just to my north, and is the source of this Wifi signal. I'm sitting on a bench made out of tree limbs.
I took the C subway to 81st, at the stop for the American Museum of Natural History, walked east along a pathway next to the Diana Ross Playground, and then over to the Delacorte. Do you need to go back now and re-read the Diana Ross Playground part? I would.
Today's plan is to hang out here, catch up on emails, make notes about films, and then wander around The Ramble, take pictures inside The Ramble (I'll explain later), and then walk east and north through Cedar Hill to the Met. I don't plan on seeing any art today, but I may go to the museum cafeteria for mid-afternoon tea.
Before I forget, and as I'm at the Delacorte, check out the plays for Shakespeare in the Park this summer:
Hamlet by William Shakespeare
May 27-June 29
Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical
July 22- August 17
