Lunchtime #drawing: The “secret” view from the Promontory in the Hallett Nature Sanctuary in @centralparknyc, with newly built and dedicated rustic seating and fencing like Calvert Vaux was known for. Check out the story about it in the @nytimes today.

As an aside, I’m surprised that Robert Moses (who wanted to build an expressway through Greenwich Village) was the one that closed off this section of the park to act as a bird sanctuary in the 1930s, which then became wildly overgrown with invasive plant species.
