walking to work i stumbled across nyc's best efforts at wimbledon. on the side of the road in the south west corner of madison square park was a teeny weeny tennis court and a mock up 'murray mound' including a big screen of play. i made my way over and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with free strawberries and cream and encouraged to take a seat on the ever so miniature slope to enjoy some tennis.
unfortunately i couldn't stay long enough to enjoy any tennis, just adverts(!) and the rather gorgeous skyline of the flatiron and empire state building, and i did get to soak up the wimbledon atmosphere from across the pond and i have to say, britain you know how to do this sort of thing best. and so it turns out i do miss you britain. although, to give you credit nyc, very valiant effort, not bad, not bad at all.
