Cirque-tacular at the Oval

19 Jun

TODAY, while we were watching the free Cirque-tacular spectacle at the Oval, I almost wished I were a kid again. What more could a child ask for? A lawn, lots of playgrounds nearby, building friends, and free stuff in the summer catered to my age group! Like the group of talented contortionists, bull-whip masters, jugglers, clowns, dancers and aerialists who performed at Peter Cooper Village and Stuy Town’s central grassy lawn, the Oval, this evening. I clapped my hands as excitedly as the toddlers crowding the railing.
