When Brian and I talk about what we will miss when we leave New York City, it isn't at all what we thought or what we craved when we came here--the tall buildings, the shows, the city. Don't get me wrong: we love the buildings, the shows, the city, but a day or two in Manhattan usually satisfies and stimulates us for the rest of the week. If we are honest with ourselves, we know that most of all, we will miss our proximity to Prospect Park and all the time we spend walking along the trails, meandering through the woods, and standing at the lake's edge with a pipe in hand. It's a quiet space in a loud one, it's a place where we are reminded that all we really need is each other, some nature, and enough money for a cup of coffee and a smoke.
