First Trip to "Little Island"

When Lynn was in New York, after England, we took a wander down to Little Island. This is a new park that is built on the pylons over the old White Start docks. FYI - White Star was the Titanic company, although they had other boats.

Anyway, the park is very nice - as you can see. It was built by Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg who both have offices in the area (they are married, even though Barry is pretty openly gay / bisexual). It is one of those parks in Manhattan that was paid to be created and private upkeep by individuals. This is common in Manhattan because rich people can afford upkeep - for example it is built into the cost of our condo for upkeep on Riverside Park.

So, although beautiful and expensive, it was free to the city and open to all.
