New York at night, I know it well because I’m usually jet-lagged when I arrive from Paris. It means that I’ll wake up at 3 a.m. and feel the need to walk. People tell me not to, but I go to Central Park at night. “It’s dangerous,” they tell me, but that’s why it’s completely empty at night. My wife is a descendant of Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park, so I have a special connection in that way.
