Bowling Green

Over the centuries, Bowling Green has been a cattle market, a private bowling ground and a quiet urban oasis at the foot of an Indian trail   known as Broadway. Today, it is the city’s oldest park and home to the Bowling Green Greenmarket, open 8 AM to 5 PM Tuesdays and Thursdays year-round. It’s a wonderful place to find  farm-fresh fruit,   vegetables and other delicacies. [Photo by Brian DiFeo]
