snow circles

The Upper West Side has its very own version of crop circles: “snow circles!”

Jay took these photos at 95th street inside Riverside Park, at the future site of an alien invasion. Or perhaps someone just really enjoys pacing around in ever-smaller circles.

      Actually I’d say they are made by a bike folks that are upset that they have to walk in the park, rather then pretending they are Lance Arbstrong on their $500 bike knocking over pepole just trying to enjoy walking in the park. Maybe one they might actuallus the bike lanes not dart in and out of traffic. Ah I can dream can’t I.
      And before you say it, no I DON’T have a care and have walked & lived on the UWS for almost all of my 48 years. Traffic is no better, no worse.

      someone was acting out the Winnie the Pooh story “… In Which Pooh and Piglet Go Hunting and Nearly Catch a Woozle”… by chasing their own tracks around in circles in the snow.

      The answer is clear: A dog walker was walking his huge retriever one night and tied it to a tree, leaving it to walk around and around the tree for exercise. The dog walker went home for a hot tea. When he returned, the dog’s leash was wound around the tree and had therefore “finished” his exercise routine was taken home … leaving circles of tracks in the snow.
