Animated .gif of Irene in progress, current satellite imagery from Intellicast.com.  You can see how incredibly huge the storm is.  Our house is on that little tiny island chain off the eastern NC coast, the eye will pass over our town later today.  Already there are widespread power outages, Rte 12 has washed out, and 2 of our piers are gone.  Potable water is out in several areas. 

Good golly, that Irene is ginormous.

Quite the storm you got there, NYC!!

I think this park is a stroke of genius. Every city should do this - it’s so perfect - because everyone is forced to live in small ungenerous spaces with no connection to nature, so I think it’s vital to have a wide, generous expanse of nature publicly available - it makes the city a place created for humans, rather than a place created for buildings.
I’ve never been there, but I must go.
Semi-interesting fact I read in Bill Bryson’s book ‘At Home’, to manage the grass, Central Park used to have a roaming herd of sheep 200 strong, shepherded by a shepherd (obviously), who lived in Central Park in one of those buildings you see. I think it would be perfect if they brought those back! hehe!
