Karl gives us scenes from, and commentary about, two parks designed by award winning landscape architect and Brooklyn Heights resident Michael Van Valkenburgh. One of these, of course, is Brooklyn Bridge Park. The other is Teardrop Park (see photo) in Battery Park City, which is part of your correspondent’s morning walk (long version) that starts on the Promenade, continues across Brooklyn Bridge, then across lower Manhattan to Battery Park City, traversing Teardrop Park and continuing to the World Financial Center, then back through City Hall Park to the Bridge. Video after the jump.
