Eastern Entrance, Washington Square Park
Inexplicably, the “french” barricades which guard this entrance overnight have the Central Park Conservancy sign on them. No word on what happened to the controversial proposed installation of “chains.” These once-uptown barricades have been at the park for awhile; it is not a sign of something ominous (at least I don’t think so…).
At least someone is using it. The petanque court is notably (and also inexplicably) sloped.
Reading Catch-22 and another sparrow:
Was a tree chopped down recently?
Against all odds, this tree was left in place at the Northeast Quadrant despite the lack of “symmetry.” There used to be picnic tables nearby too. Those did not survive.
