We were staying with friends in downtown Manhattan, in the kind of weather that feels
like a gigantic invisible dog is standing over the city just panting.
We walked down to the river. It was cooler there.
We walked through a park full of sculpture and flowers.
Toddlers splashed in the fountains of a playground as limo drivers gossiped & smoked,
waiting for buildings to empty.
You can see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island across the water, it's beautiful.
New Yorkers are smart, tough,kind and hard-working.
If it were up to me, Manhattan would be our capitol.
Yeah, I love New York.
