    Since no one has lawns in NYC, they put them all together into one Great one. Do all the things you would in your own lawn, except you don't have to cut it.

    Several amazing places are under nature's harmony: take a chance to just be quiet and to be sitting. But not for long, life too short to be sitting for eternity...
