While walking on the streets adjacent to Central Park yesterday, I noticed that some of the cherry trees were just starting to show signs of white. Any tonight, as Claire and I came up from the subway after hanging out with the St. Lawrence String Quartet, I looked up, surprised: all of the cherry trees in front of Lincoln Center were in full bloom! The blossoms were beautiful, even when only peripherally lit by the street lights on the Upper West Side. I know it won't last long; I'm going to see if they are photo-worthy tomorrow. I'm sure there are other areas of New York where the cherry blossoms are beautiful. Anyone have any tips on where I should go to find them?
I've got to get to Japan one of these years.
