  5. Birds, Bands, Buskers and Bubbles at Bethesda Terrace in Central Park, all within about 400 feet. It never gets old for me, but was even more fun to experience with you, sharing together our passions for beauty, patterns, texture and music. And now I know how to spot a brown creeper or a bufflehead!
