Quidditch in Sara D. Roosevelt Park
Call us old-fashioned, but Harry Potter enthusiasts playing Quidditch in the park is weird as hell. On a busy Saturday morning, college-aged students hopped around PACE field in Sara D. Roosevelt Park with broomsticks between their legs, throwing volleyballs through hula hoops. The area teemed with onlookers, many of which gawked and cringed.
But because this is melting pot of the Lower East Side, the soundtrack to the event was not the epic John Williams score, but that of the drone of traditional Chinese tunes.
