Beat The Devil Says

There's this building in Prospect Park on the green pasture called The Tennis House. When it's open, you can go inside and look at the building itself, which is pretty cool. It almost looks like a corridor or something. I used to go to Prospect Park a lot when I first moved here because it's quiet and I just like being removed from everything. So I discovered the Tennis House, and the echoes here are crazy, so if you talk you can hear yourself talking like three or four fold. It's so awesome. We would drop quarters to hear what sounds they would make, and we could just go there and have a ball—just screaming, singing, playing an acoustic guitar and just hearing all the echoes over and over again. It's really cool. I don't know how they managed to capture that. But it's amazing just going in there and screaming your head off like a kid. —Shilpa Ray
