The sun has set on a beautiful, 70 degree day here in New York. Bwog had a lovely time remembering how wonderful it is here (and below 96th Street!) during the first few days of spring. We k-velled like k-razy when we spotted this yellow flower and sign poking out of an open window on […]

It’s the first real cold snap of winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to wilt! Bwog has a whole list of reasons to embrace the freeze.

Tomorrow! Flying kites! EarthCo is providing plastic bags and pre-made plastic bag kites for a Mary Poppins session on Low Plaza from noon to 4:00 pm, where they’ll probably also try to teach you something about wind power.

Earth Day Apologia

In its addled state, Bwog forgot that today was Earth Day, until Google reminded us (if you missed it, the logo is a half-submerged iceberg).
