I've never been to New York. I would love to go, of course. How can you not want to visit the Big Apple? I mean that I come to mind when you hear "New York":
– Frank Sinatra
– Simon and Garfunkel
– David Letterman
– Times Square
– Madison Square Garden
– Statue of Liberty
– Gramercy Park
And much more. New York is sure to melt the culture and international cool. Of all the world's cities, where you want to go, it will be my priority.
But of the things that come to mind when I think of New York, Gramercy Park intrigues me the most. You might think that pop culture and art scene captivate me even more. They fascinate me, but in the park Gramersi there is something quite different. Something quiet, calming and soothing.
I believe that this idea is that while the New York "the city that never sleeps", in the city there are pockets of calm. I love the fast-paced life and somehow the energy of color and noise. But I also appreciate its easy. For the city to have a place for me to connect with nature again, this is a big deal. Yes, yes, Gramersi Park – one of those of "creative assets", where you can just go out there, relax and smooth out the kinks.
I know that not everyone has access to the park Grammersi. It is private, and only the residents of the surrounding area have a key to enter. But that's all right, it's not like I'm actually going to visit the park (although if I had the money, I would have bought a house in the neighborhood!).
No, I zaintrygue idea of this protective place in town.
Gramercy Park is an effort to preserve nature in a big city. This attraction, which spoiled because of its history and the attractive nature of the inhabitants.
I think it is good that such places are preserved and protected. We all need our green shelters, private or not. Many of us support the hard work and lead a troubled life. Parks such as the Gremersi – is a desirable place to slow down and benefits.
Especially if you are in the creative industries (which a lot of people in New York). You need to be able to move from the uber-modern world to the cooled natural world in a matter of minutes. I believe that it greatly helps the process of thinking. It is also comforting to know that if your brain is fried, or you are on the verge of burnout, there is a place where you can steal for the required air and tranquility.
What about you? What is your idea of peace? Do you prefer the high life in the urban area, hardened green parks and smoothing of the natural environment?
Or you do not disturb urban waste and industrial space? Or bothers you the lack of greenery in the middle of the city? Do you think that the parks closed privileges inflated?
