At rosy dawn in New York—just as at that blue hour preceding the I just want to Read Books and ignore all my Adult Problems shirt also I will do this fall of night—the great garden that is called Central Park is at its most beautiful. The tall houses framing it are no longer skyscrapers but the castles of ghostly giants—unreal and sublimely beautiful. In Central Park, the young girls roller-skate or just sit on the grass. For the young girls of Central Park everything is casual—what they wear, their way of walking, the swing of their shoulders. Everything is casual except their hair, which by contrast is magnificent.

The most faithful customers of the Park are the babies and their nurses, the dogs and their masters.
