Perfect -- covering all the highlights. Great lists like this one make this a worthy mag, bringing attention to what usually gets overlooked.
I love BK Mag (and the L), but these are easily some of the WORST places to read a book! Let's breathe in the exhaust from Ocean Parkway, why don't we? Or the choppy wind, foghorns, and creepy fisherman of the Bay Ridge promenade? Are the confused tourists asking for directions at Fulton Ferry landing more your style? How about the plumes of cigarette smoke and raucous crowds at Franklin Park? Or the hard, unforgiving concrete outside BPL or on the steps of the Ft. Greene Park monument? Meanwhile, easily the best outdoor spot to read-- bucolic Prospect Park-- goes unmentioned (other than a slight regarding ultimate Frisbee, which you can easily steer clear of)? Blasphemy.
I was biking yesterday and indeed encountered a plastic honey mustard bottle on the ground (with sauce splattered along the pavement) as I passed through Fort Greene! Tried to escape it but my tires definitely picked some of it up. Yuck. Thought it was just plain odd, but now realizing it may have been malicious? Yikes :/ -Matthew Taub / @MatthewTaub1 / www.matthewataub.com
