Before I tell you what I see in the Easter Maybe Crowd, I should tell you about my perch. I am minister at Judson Memorial Church on Washington Square.
The Park is located at the south end of Lexington Avenue, at 21st Street, where Lexington abruptly goes from concrete to green, surprising more than just this New Jersey driver. In fact, the security guard at the Gramercy Park Hotel said he saw the whole thing. It happens all the time, he said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. The car didnt stop, backed up and headed the wrong way down 21st Street, which is a one way street, before making a U-turn and leaving.
On my personal scale of frantic before a flight, I was only a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. I was running a bit late in the cab to LaGuardia for a 4:15 p.m. flight to Cleveland.
