Notes and Comment

July 1960
New Yorker;7/16/1960, Vol. 36 Issue 22, p23
The article relates the author's views and experiences at Bryant Park in New York. Land and property at the park are owned by nobody and are merely leased from somebody else. At the park is the statue of William Cullen Bryant, a quadrangle of maples and from the park is a view of the old-fashioned skyscrapers in the city. People who come to the park are the quiet people including lovers, thinkers, newspaper readers, derelicts, the retired, the out-of-work, the dying and the like.
