What You See in Sunset Park: Garden Jockey and Friends

This is an interesting side garden on 49th (is it 49th?) close to 8th Avenue. It serves as parking and refuge. You've got swans, Little Boy Blue, a lawn jockey, and perhaps a depressed, drunk Charlie Chaplin (help me out here) leaning on a lampost. This is only in addition to lots of landscaping and flowers. It's a lovely garden. The postal carrier stopped when he say me snapping a photo; he agreed it was worth a look every day he passed.

I love that there are several yards like this around Sunset Park. In the low 40's there are several huge lawns that have remained empty of buildings as well.
