"Yet, there was a possibility that troubled many: A line in a park that had the freedom to meander as long and as deep as the Mississippi might be unwieldy on the heavily trafficked sidewalks of the Upper West Side. The fear was that it would clog entrances to nearby establishments or the apartment buildings on 77th Street."
