In which The Gay Recluse explores the perils of uptown living.

Location: The little park between Ft. Tryon and Inwood Hill between Dyckman and Riverside. (Approximately.)

Now that it’s warm enough to go outside and there’s plenty of wind, especially down by the river, we’ve been gearing up for one of our favorite spring hobbies: flying kites. But even kite-flying is not without potential consequences, as the below pix more than demonstrate:

We love trees as a rule, but this one is kind of scary!

It was terrifying to see the kite get munched down as we stood by helpless!

To all kite flyers considering the move to Wahi, don’t say you haven’t been warned. There’s a lot of open space up here and plenty of wind, but there are also some seriously hungry trees around. Be prepared!
