It was a good day for kites in the city. There were some in the park, bien sur, but also out by the Verazano, and some on the beach in Coney Island...
none here, of course, just a beautiful shot of the city. (sorry for the poor resolution, a camera phone, ya know?)
58th Street, or there abouts, and the way east side, just north of the old brooklyn army yard, a big pier and it was mostly empty. me and a few guys fishing, someone listening to a baseball game and a kid reading harry potter - it was as good a place to fly as any.
next is, i wanna fly between the buildings of industry city; i expect the wind patterns and shifts to be fun and difficult.

Colin "Heezabeast" Loughlin came to town and beasted it up with the Brooklyn Flyers in Prospect Park. We flew kites I think, but more importantly we invented a game I am going to refer to as "Scream Ball." To play, all you need is a football and some screamy friends.
Rules: One player--the "thrower"--has the ball. All other players run in varying directions and call for a pass by screaming the thrower's name. Whoever screams more or less the loudest gets the pass. Whoever gets the ball is now the thrower.
We left the park and had a triumphant return to my roof for a BBQ, and then into the city for Tru Brit.
...And it was good.
