Literary Walk (Central Park)


Those would be Sir Walter Scot, Robert Burns, and Fitz Greene Hallek. I’ve never paid them much mind. But I got caught in the view of the trees and had some time to kill on my way towards an appointment on the East Side where I stopped by the Literary Walk in Central Park. What makes the literary walk “literary” was seen by one speaker at the dedication is the inclusion into the site of the human element, those “human associations, historical or poetic” that are “connected” with “shades,” “lawns, “rocks, “waters,”  and “new memories.”
