Popsicles in the Park

Popsicles in the Park
May 25th, 2016

Before beginning our adventure in NYC, I had decided that I wanted to use my spare time to explore the vast culture of New York and live like a "true New Yorker" (of course, there was some shopping too!). After our appointments were done for the day, a group of us set out to Brooklyn to relax (and people watch) at Washington Square Park. One added bonus to this adventure was that Washington Square Park is located near NYU's campus. We were able to walk around/see what a University across the country is like which was a very cool experience. 

One thing that we did not anticipate was the heat! Coming from Minnesota, we weren't expecting the sun to be shining so bright at 6 PM. We figured our best solution was to get a cold (but still yummy) treat from a food cart; popsicles! 

We spent an hour just relaxing/sitting, talking, and people watching around the fountain that was in the middle of the park. One of the most interesting things that we saw was people participating in something called "acro-yoga". There was a group of 15 people taking turns balancing on each other in yoga poses. We even got the chance to talk to one of the yogi's and he recommended we give it a try. We weren't dressed for the occasion but keep your eye's peeled for a U of M acro-yoga group next fall! ;)
