On the Waterfront

Last night I went to an event at the Battery Park Ritz Carlton, which is just a short walk from my office: through Battery Park City along the water. It was a beautiful evening and I felt exactly like I was in one of those architect's renderings of a future development: a beautiful view of the river and harbor, a path neatly lined with healthy green trees and thick flower beds, a mix of people sitting on benches reading newspapers or chatting, others spinning by on bicycles or rollerblades, or pushing strollers or pulling spry little dogs on bright colored leashes. If the other plans to turn waterfront into parks and living spaces come to fruition, this will really feel like a coastal city.
