The little gate in front of the Gandhi statue on the southwest corner of the park was open so I stepped in to take a look. Funny how a twenty inch tall gate had kept me from getting new views of the park for the longest time. Maybe it’s been open before, I just didn’t notice.
There was a street fair, a market of sorts in Union Square today. And, surprisingly, there were no organic turnips or naturally fermented pickles. It was for NYSERDA, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, and the stands were to promote clean energy ideas. If you’re passing through today, check it out!
