159. NEW YORK ON FOOT. Central Park. Dogs and daffodils on a spring day at Cedar Hill. Cedar Hill’s nickname is Dog Hill, due to the fact that between 6 and 7am the area is inundated with hundreds of offleash Manhattan canines having the time of their lives. Kids and dogs were not built to be cooped up in small apartments, which is why I believe theirs is the purest love for a much loved place.
