Carl Schurz Park162 viewsOne of many parks in Manhattan that are less heralded than Central Park, but are nevertheless pleasant oases. This one is on the Upper East Side at the East River Promenade and East 86th Street.

Local Wildlife163 viewsThe squirrels aren't too squirrely. They're more like dogs begging for food. Hell, everything seems to beg for food in New York: pigeons, squirrels, sparrows, dogs, people...

East River Promenade174 viewsThe Promenade provides a safe place for joggers, walkers, and pushers of baby buggies. Part of it sits on top of the East Side Highway (FDR Drive). That's the Queensborough Bridge (better known as the 59th Street Bridge) in the distant mist.

Dorothy Frankel's "L.O.V.E." Sculpture334 viewsThis bronze sculpture is part of a larger series of work based on sign language that Dorothy Frankel has completed in recent years. Slightly larger than life, the sculptures are modeled in terra cotta from a life model and then cast in bronze. Three of Frankel's sculptures are exhibited at Carl Schurz Park, East River Promenade and 86th Street.
