      When a city’s architects use the big picture in their design, they shouldn’t be stifled by small minds.

      This rare sight of the Empire State Building through the lense of the Grand Army Plaza is no coincidence and a truly miraculous view especially near New Years when all is dark and bear of leaves. Once you witness this view, I trust that preservation of it will prevail in your heart.

      I used to live in Park Slope in the 70's & 80's and one of my great pleasures was walking in the evening after dark up PPW and coming upon Grand Army Plaza. Even back in the bad old days, the 70's, it was a spectacular view that demonstrated the value of art to spirits and souls that might have felt crushed by the weight of reality. We don't have many traditions associated with great art. At least try to preserve the few we have. .. .
