  • I had taken a long subway ride to Sunset Park the highest point in any of the New York Boroughs, with a transcendant view of the New York City skyline. When I arrived and stepped out of the subway station it was the grayest of days... My heart sunk. Still, I headed to the park in order to see, a hoped for, view. Unfortunately, fog as thick as pea soup covered the skyline, and there was nothing at all to see. Disappointed, I turned around to leave and happened on these two boys performing a playground ballet. Sometimes the view you get to see is not at all what you expected, but can be just as beautiful...
