Some highlights of central Central Park. . Cleopatra's Needle (a 3500 year-old Egyptian obelisk -- actually built around a thousand years before Cleopatra's reign), Turtle Pond, the Shakespeare Garden (with quotes and flowers mentioned in the plays), Belvedere Castle, with its panoramic views, and the Ramble -- 38 acres of winding wooded trails. Maybe a mile altogether at a pretty slow pace, and with quite a few stops. We'll end up around 1pm with lunch at the Boat Basin Cafe (bring your own or buy it there -- great chili!). Meet 10:30 on the NW corner of 85th St. & 5th Ave. Call or email me beforehand if the weather looks unpromising, or if you have any questions. No smoking (of course!). Bob Susser; [masked];[masked]
