You've got to hand it to NYU: they know how fix up the joint.
Sure, come graduation week they kind of over do it with the purple tulips and whatnot. But check-out the building on the east side of the park, and you'll find these absolutely gorgeous flowerboxes, smack in the middle of July.
And nothing unusual planted here, no sir. Just your basic potato vine, ferns, coleus, peace lilies and a few nice young trees (perhaps a weeping cherry?).
Yet it catches the eye as if it were unusual. What's unusual about it is the shape it's in: pristine.
So thank you NYU for making the neighborhood sparkle, even when it isn't graduation week.skgr
