MadisonSquareParkMadison Square Park is the park where Benny, my dog, and I spend lots of time.  Benny’s time is spent sniffing and dreaming of catching that elusive squirrel and I daydream, reflect, chat with neighbors, other dog walkers, and strangers. Beginning in 1912, Madison Square Park was home to the first public holiday tree in the nation. Madison Square Park was home to the torch of the Statue of Liberty for six years to raise funds for the completion of the statue and its pedestal.  There is also a suggestion that the southwest corner of Madison Square Park is where America’s pastime, baseball, got its mid-19th century start.game.. Whatever the history – enjoy today’s reflections.

Hi Judy, I always enjoy your posts, however, today was really special. I love old photos and enjoyed the links in your email. I will share with my husband and son. Son is a high school social studies teacher (Hix) and will enjoy. He taught an elective, “New York State of Mind” so named because Billy Joel was a Hicksville High School student Best holiday wishes, Barbara Bunting Bronx Zoo docent

Hi Judy

Love these photos. What a great concept. Got to see the baby snow leopards on Wed. Got some great shots of them playing with Mom in the snow. I wish you and your furbabies a very Merry Christmas.
