Central Park is one of the staples of New York City. In particular, Central Park was used in many of the post cards that I encountered throughout the day (I should have taken photos of all of the Central Park post cards from all of the stands that I passed by that day). It is perhaps a "generic" postcard from New York City. This post card attracted me because I have yet to experience Central Park during seasons other than summer. Coming from San Diego, California, I did not experience seasons until I got to Syracuse in August 2015. This photo of Central Park captures a visual and spatial affect that I have yet to experience.
A photo of the post cards section inside the Strand Bookstore (Union Square). I visited this bookstore after dropping by the Parsons architecture student exhibition, with Ray and Ethan.
I purchased this card because I thought it was interesting, in that it is printed on very thing wood with continuous wood grain as opposed to card stock paper. As this was the day off, I just wanted to say, cheers!
