|The best workout you'll get all year|
April 4th was International Pillow Fight Day and this year, Newmindspace organized the 7th annual New York City Pillow Fight in Washington Square Park. Thousands of people, and several policemen, flocked downtown to organized chaos.
I’ve wanted to do this since I came to Barnard, and this year, there were no immediate commitments that prevented me from going, so I took the trip and got there early. Even by 2:40, the park was full. People of all ages were waiting for the signal. A Jazz group I’ve seen playing at the 59th Street station, featuring a man who plays two trumpets at once, was there inadvertently livening up the place. When I left, I saw the trumpet player shaking his head at the craziness.
