from the New York Times:
More people than ever are jamming into the city’s public parks, pools and beaches, filling the most popular ones to bursting, creating noise and trash problems and making the experience altogether less enjoyable for those looking for a bit of serenity.
The parks are so crowded these days
there’s not even room for Sol’s rays.
The beaches are crammed
as if they were spammed;
when swimming you must go sideways.
