Central Park is a big place and it looks big, usually. But the mass of people lounging on the Great Lawn this evening made the park feel small and cramped. Whatever the capacity is for the park, I'm pretty sure we exceeded it. Rolling clouds and light showers couldn't drive people away and together we toughed out the weather delays to enjoy a wonderful show by the New York Philharmonic and violinist Joshua Bell, who is so good and so popular that even I know who he is. And then there were fireworks, and the people rejoiced.
