Seinfeld Country

with one comment

For this Memorial Day weekend, I’m staying on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A friend’s gone away for the weekend and a deal was struck where I got a lovely apartment to myself for the weekend in exchange for feeding her cats. I spent a good portion of my Saturday in Riverside Park. Uncle Leo’s son Jeffrey did a good job. It’s a lovely park. A park that will forever, though, be associated with a certain magnificent moment in cinematic history…

Then Tom and Meg kiss, the camera rises up, Harry Nilsson’s version of “Over The Rainbow” comes in, and the audience leave the cinema with tears in their eyes. Not me, of course, I’ve just got something in my eye, alright?

Now, though, it’s Sunday morning. I’ve got an enormo cappuccino and an even enormo-er local newspaper, and I’ve got a few hours to kill before the Yankees-Mariners game, so, back to the park.

  1. Regarding my eyes. It’s just allergies. Really. The pollen count is crazy high.
