Playground and Secret Cafe

I was shocked to find a playground with such simple equipment. 10 see saws, about 5 slides, lots of swings, and a climbing structure that the kids got mildly hurt on. On the way out, I saw that it's officially named Classic Playground! I liked that instead of spending a few million dollars to refurbished it, they gave it a name that would make the equipment look intentional. At 74th and Riverside Park. Views of the Hudson. Very old equipment but new to my kids!
Afterwards we stopped by The Boat Basin Cafe aka by me The Secret Cafe. It's sort of hard to find because you have to walk under the 79th Street overpass, down some stairs, and it appears. Small menu, views of the Hudson, surprisingly good lemonade. Me and the boys split a hamburger with bacon, cheese, and a big tomato. Good! The picture below is on our way out. Go through the arches, find a table outside. Perfect, easy morning.

    Sounds like a park where I used to play by my grand parents house, they had old play structures where my brother broke his arm :)
