Good Bye Great Lawn

With the end of summer comes the end of hanging out on the Great Lawn on Shabbat afternoons. The New York Times had a profile on the Great Lawn 2 years ago. 

I have very fond memories of my time on the GL and I have decided to make a list of things I will miss about the Great Lawn. In no particular order:

1. dodging the errant flyballs from all the softball games going on

2. walking laps around the GL with Bill and bumping into people who you haven’t seen in ages

3. blanket hopping

4. working on my tan, well in my case my non-existent tan

5. all the cute babies and little kids I would randomly start playing with in the park

6. all the cute puppies I would randomly start playing with in the park

7. leftover lunches

8. the man who brought a cooler full of popsicles

9. people with their telescopes placed in the middle of the walkway around the GL

10. rollerblading nuns
