On Friday, I got up really early to go into the city. My brother was in from Colombia, so we had an early morning breakfast as is our wont. Breakfast at 8 am at the Grey Dog on University. Last time we were there, Alec Baldwin was there, but he didn't recognize me. Maybe this time.
I get up and drive to the subway. I've usually got great parking kharma, but today there are no spaces available.

Is today a school day? It's summer, but it's Friday. I'm not sure.
I call 311.

The last time our family saw Andrews Grove park in Long Island City it had been freshly devastated by Superstorm Sandy. The large walnut trees that lined the back of the park had fallen down, turning the jungle gyms into piles of twisted metal.
But, now nearly three years later, Andrews Grove is back and a real gem in an area with a bunch of really nice parks.
