I went for a run today along the water, and instead of turning right, I turned left and ran towards Coney Island on the pedestrian/bike walkway.
I saw a cormorant among the usual seagulls, and could see Swinburne and Hoffman islands, where they used to stash typhoid cases back in the day (yet another Pinataland song waiting to happen--get on that one, boys).
So I have a glorious unobstructed view of the ocean, a perfect run on a flat surface, a gentle ocean breeze, the squawkings of birds all around, and not a Christmas shopper in sight--all within walking distance of my home.
Reason #4,487 for living in the Ridge.
And another thing--when you haven't had a saltine in a while, they taste really good.
That's not meant to be metaphorical, just an observation.
