Labyrinth Chosen “Hidden Gem of NYC”

The Battery Labyrinth

Seth Kugel, The New York Times Frugal Traveler chose The Battery Labyrinth as one of the “5 Hidden Gems of New York City.”  He writes: “The Labyrinth for Contemplation in Battery Park. Just under a decade has passed since inlaid stones were placed in the form of a circular labyrinth in a grove of cedar trees, but somehow, I’d been to Battery Park at least a dozen times since then and never noticed it. But after a friend tipped me off, there it was in plain sight, just east of the striking cut-out of a soldier at the Korean War Veterans Memorial and just northeast of Castle Clinton, where you get your tickets for the Statue of Liberty. The labyrinth is not a maze, really – there’s only one route through, and you can’t get lost – but something about having to follow the path transports you out of downtown Manhattan and into your own thoughts — though look up and you can see the Statue of Liberty in one direction and the rising One World Trade Center in the other.”

    I’d left a message ealreir this week about the bare-root perennials I bought at the plant sale. They had some clear crystals around them and I planted them around the plants in my garden upstate. Recently I noticed that the crystals had turned into kind of a gooey mass. Should I just leave them there and assume they’ll eventually be absorbed into the soil?Many thanks!
