It was really busy over the weekend, with the beautiful weather we had. Full of people chatting, reading, drinking coffee, interacting with one another. A beautiful vision for our neighborhood.

Wish I could pop by for a stroll today, but am in the office. Can't wait to check this out though

Michelle, sorry to disillusion you, but the S. Elliott plaza is for sitting in, not strolling. Strolling can be done on the sidewalks of New York -- as the song goes.
