Few places are more of an egalitarian meeting point than a public park. Ever been hustled at chess in Greenwich Village? Try going to Washington Square at 2:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday. That's another great thing about parks, there's every kind of hustle there! I think being out in nature speaks to our communal soul. In New York City there are different parks with urban, suburban, and rural feels. Washington Square Park couldn't be more different from the woodlands of Prospect Park or The Northern Overlook of Fort Tryon Park. Most are accessible by subway and bus too.
