After I Buy 73 73rd

I want this job — keeper of Gramercy Park. Have to spread the VRC around town. That and end the waste. It’s a private park that apparently near no-one uses. Hints as to why: 

There is, to be frank, not much to do in the park. Music is forbidden. So are alcoholic beverages, bicycles and furniture. A gravel path around the perimeter provides the only opportunity for low-impact play, or, for that matter, running or walking. Ms. Harrison said parents constantly offer to donate playground components for the park, but she won’t have it.

“Too much wear and tear,” she said. “But do you know what? The children who grow up here learn to use their imagination.”

Yes, I wonder why….
