Primrose Hill

February 14, 2009

Primrose Hill park is supposed to be formed from rubble from London Underground. Strange because flanking houses seem older. The park is un-naturally steep, though. It may be a glacial outlier of Hampstead Heath with spoil on one shoulder, so to speak. SP often took brief, swift walks here. The Blue Plaque is in Chalcotte Sqare. William Butler Yeats’s is not far off in Fitzroy Avenue. Looking south counting cranes from here may indicate economic activity in London. Count how many buildings have appeared in this view in your lifetime. Many of them are skyscapers.
