A Tree Grows in Washington Square

When I was a young girl, I read a book called "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith.  Since we had hoped to get over to Brooklyn via the Brooklyn Bridge but ran out of time, I snapped several photos of trees in Washington Square Park that will just have to suffice!

As I mentioned yesterday, New York has given its residents and visitors a welcome respite in the middle of all the hustle of the big city.  The parks give a quiet place to sit and reflect or join in on the frivolity of the area.  We chose to sit and relax and take in the scenery before moving on in our travels in the city that never sleeps!
