Park Here, Mulberry Street

On January 17th, I visited a new concept in urban real estate here in New York City called Park Here which is an “indoor pop up park” located on Mulberry Street between Kenmore and Spring Streets. In a world of increasing urbanization where outdoor space and open space is harder and harder to find, this creative approach is indeed intriguing and quite unique.

The 911 Memorial

Kent Swig at 911 MemorialI visited the 911 Memorial this past January 11th to see the area in the winter months as I wanted to experience the Memorial in the cold and starkness of winter where there are no leaves on the trees and there are relatively few other visitors.  The Memorial’s design, already solemn and made of strong and hard materials, evoked an even more exaggerated somber mood in the winter season, reflective of the horrible tragedy that occurred there a little over one decade ago.  I look forward to again visiting the Memorial in the spring when the leaves on the 416 White Swamp Maple trees and the one Calorie Pear tree begin to bud again combining the emotions of hope and renewal to the pallor somberness that is always ever present.
