Go Fly a Kite

One of the more soothing events of the now concluded weekend was the PS 132 Kite Flying festival in McCarren Park in Williamsburg. The event comfortably mixed hipsters and longtime residents with families. While Gowanus Lounge did not Go Fly a Kite, he did enjoy the laid back vibe, especially after becoming molto agitato while taking in the development rush on Kent Avenue.

At least, in McCarren Park on Sunday, you could watch children flying kites and wearing angel wings, people sitting on the grass and listen to marching band sounding music (an odd sound indeed given the territory, or is it the next wave of music to come out of the Burg?), ignoring the reality that there is a new building going up on every other block and that, someday soon, you will look in the direction of Manhattan and see a wall of highrise apartment buildings.
