    CP is infamous for the movie "The Out of Towners," the great crossing the park scene from "Where's Poppa?" and lot's of Charles Bronson "Death Wish I,II,III" action. Maybe that's what y'all are confused about!!!!

    One young woman being brutally raped and left for dead is news. Millions of people in and out of the park without incident isn't.

    I could take you places in my little town of under 10K which are probably more dangerous than most Central Park.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Just west of where we took the pics, there were a few areas that was a possibility. Of course, the kids said they would do it.
