I live in Soho and have seen the Time Landscape before but didn't know its story. I'm planning to make an intentional walk (not to Philly - bless you) but to see this space. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for reading!

Next time I see her I might ask her what her relationship to the Time Landscape is.

I’ve never read Vivian Gornick before. Next I’ll have to read The Situation and the Story!

And have you noticed the many gallon plastic jugs of water in Time Landscape? I often see a very bent over old woman wheeling them there and hand watering the landscape.

I'm very curious to know that old woman's story. I've seen her a couple times during my visits.

I haven't read The Odd Woman and The City, but I'm a Vivian Gornick fan. Thanks for the rec. I'm currently reading her book on writing called The Situation and the Story.

Have you read The Odd Woman and the City by Vivian Gornick? A lot about walking in NYC
