Sloane Crosley: 'If you should see a thin rivulet of liquid trickling down concrete in Central Park, stay away. That’s not water'
Saturday 21 May 2011
Last week I was in a taxicab in Seattle, headed into town from the airport. Suddenly the car in front of mine came to a stop. My driver cursed. He explained to me that the drawbridge was going up and it almost never goes up at "this hour". I do not hail from a land of drawbridges – despite living on an island in New York, there's a real dearth of water that's not hanging around in concave pavement or springing forth from a fire hydrant. (If you should see a thin rivulet of liquid trickling down concrete in Central Park, stay away. That's not water.) Thus, a drawbridge is a novelty for me. Not only did I not mind waiting – an unusual mental state for me in the back seat of a taxi – but I craned my neck to look at the boat in question.

Early on a Sunday morning on Staten Island in October 1978, a volunteer on a yellow NYC bus collecting kit bags from runners about to compete in the New York Marathon was handed a bundle from a slight, nervous-looking blonde. He looked down and saw that her race number, 1173, had only been scrawled in pen, a late addition to the field.
