Carl Shurz Park is one of Manhattan's larger parks and has many vastly different areas. There is the huge children's playground, a dog run, the walk along the river (Finley Walk), Gracie Mansion and, the Peter Pan alcove.
Yesterday Little Squid attended a birthday party in the alcove and I was his adult companion. Since the weather was iffy, I stayed at the party and knit while he ran around with the boys.
Below are some shots of this lovely, lovely area. I can just see people coming here for quiet contemplation and couples sitting and making out with the scent of rose blossoms surrounding them. (Personally, Mike and I used to make out on the benches on Finley walk, facing the river.)
