Benny and meMadison 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.  Considering the special 100th year anniversary Benny and I spent some quality time admiring this year’s tree.  If you look closely you can see both of us in the reflections.  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.
