Yesterday we told you to Eat a Burger in Madison Square Park in honor of Earth Day. Today we have a healthier suggestion: Read a book in Bryant Park.
I stumbled across this the other day. Bryant Park has a “reading room” set up with racks of newspapers books and even children’s books. And since Bryant Park sits behind the New York Public Library it makes sense that books should be available to read in the park. The tradition began during the depression when out-of-work businessmen needed somewhere free to go and occupy their minds. Today we just need somewhere to go to be unplugged.
Happy Earth Day!
