The National Says

I love Prospect Park. They say it has one of the last virgin forests in North America—there are parts that have never been cut down. My sister actually goes birding here pretty often. It's full of interesting species and there are a lot of migratory birds that come in and out. I run here a couple times a week in the morning, and there are a couple different spots that I like to go and to sit or kick a soccer ball with friends. I live two blocks away, and it's just great to live near such a beautiful park and be able to go for walks. You feel like you can breathe and be creative here. —Aaron Dessner
