A 10 OUT OF 10 DAY
New York generally gets no more than a handful of perfect days each year. The first Friday in November just happened to be one of them, low sixties, blue skies, a paintbrush stroke of falls colors and a clear view for miles.
The emerald jewel in the cities crown has always been Central Park and even though I had a couple meetings to navigate on Friday and an early evening flight I still carved out an hour to walk over the cinder paths now covered with a patchwork of golden leaves in one of the most magnificent parks in the world on a day that was nothing but perfect. I would be guilty of being greedy if I didn’t share.
