Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

To answer last’s week’s question, 87% of you got it right. We were in Ottawa, Canada. Also, 8% of you think Miranda and TB got heat headaches. It was bloody hot that day, which curtailed a lot of our exploring outside. Staying inside helped kept the headaches at bay. Luckily, we got the a/c fixed in TB’s car before this leg of the trip, or it would have been a miserable drive home.

Now for this week’s guessing game.

A handful of week ago, Miranda and TB went to New York City for a couple of days.

While there, they walked through a famous park on the way to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. They brought along Only for the Summer by Shannon O’Connor.

Here are some clues about one of the cities they explored on an extremely hot and humid July day.

1. This urban park is located between the Upper West Side and Upper East Side neighborhoods of Manhattan in New York City.

2. The initial parts of park first opened in 1858 and was completed in 1876.

3. It was the first massive landscaped public park in the entire United States. Rich New Yorkers wanted their own park after seeing some in European cities like London and Paris.

4. During construction, to break the bedrock, workers had to use gunpowder. They ended up using more gunpowder in the park than during the Gettysburg battle in the American Civil War.

5. It’s the fifth largest park in NYC, but it’s the most visited urban park in the United States.

6. It’s the most filmed location in the world and according to a 2017 report, more than 230 movies have shot scenes there.

Here are some photos of the park in New York City along with Only for the Summer by Shannon O’Connor.

Time to vote on park name.

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Where in the heck are Miranda & TB?

Polls close on August 31. The answer will be revealed on September 2.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Miranda & TB
