Buckyball at 79th and Central Park West


This was my first trip back to New York since I crossed the George Washington Bridge in a U-Haul four years ago, Michigan-bound. I couldn't go back without hitting my old stomping grounds on the Upper West Side. Bought some knishes at Zabar's (my wife is trying to figure out how to stuff them in the suitcase now) and, of course, I had to visit the Hayden Planetarium to walk around the giant sphere. The exhibits start with the tiny at the top and works its way to universal proportions at the bottom. Here, at the 1 nanometer level, I kneel in proper respect before the buckyball.
