It is calm. It is peace. Prospect Park is the place where we go to escape the city, even for a moment, to collect ourselves, even if we’re just cutting through it on our way to someplace else.
It is also a celebration. Everyone that is in the park is happy to be there and that evokes a collective joy. It’s also one of the few words that bring eruptive happiness to our puppy. You don’t even have to say it’s name, simply spelling P-A-R-K has her running to the door unable to contain her excitement.
