Petanque -- New York Style

Across from the Kinokunya bookstore is Bryant Park, the back of the NY Public Library. At the 6th Avenue side of the park you will find this:
The day that I was there, there were 2 areas where the game was being played nonstop. This was at 2 in the afternoon, and at least one of the players was a young man in a suit and tie obviously taking a break from work.
There were some experienced players and some having the rules explained as they went along.
Some of the calls were tight
Others not so much
And the players in THIS game were a true New York assortment of characters..
