And for something different… Meg Ryan at the Park Recently

Yes, celebrities from time to time walk through Washington Square (and film here) but not many have such a connection to Washington Square Park as Meg Ryan.

I happened to see Meg Ryan walking through WSP right before it was shut for the storm! She was in the midst of a an animated conversation with a friend walking down the NW pathway.

Here’s a link to the scene from “When Harry Met Sally” – which stars Ryan and Billy Crystal – when Harry drops Sally off in front of the Arch (1989). (Actually, I think Sally drops Harry off!)
