Paradise Lost

Photographs rarely feel as if they capture what you can see. This image of the grassy knoll I described in a previous post comes close. I knew a whacking was coming, seed heads were fully formed. I took this photo a few nights ago. This morning it was whacking time, by NYC Parks not DOT.


  1. Hi,

    I found your blog through the Kensington Prospect blog. I walk past this spot every day, and have often wished that it were a park. Do you have any idea how one goes about convincing the city to designate land as a park?

  2. No, I don't.
    One way would be just to make it a park ourselves.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
