Once in a While, Nice Is Enough

Yesterday Mrs. FtF and I met a couple of friends from New Jersey at 72nd and Central Park West for a stroll through the park before brunch.

The afternoon was beautiful--one of those bright New York winter days with a low sun shining in a clear blue sky.

The park drives were closed to traffic, and the walkways were packed with people out to enjoy the day and see The Gates.

I haven't been enthusiastic about the project, and experiencing it didn't change my opinion. But, you know, it's not a bad thing.

The day was lovely, everyone was in a good mood, and New Yorkers and tourists alike were enjoying themselves. No matter what you say about the project, it makes people happy. It's nice that way.

And sometimes, especially on a gorgeous mid-February Sunday afternoon like yesterday, nice can be good enough for a few hours.
