Reviewer Comments:

• This short podcast "child" is part of the Meet Me at the Corner parent series. It is a virtual field trip to Washington Square Park in NYC, a veritable center for chess. We observe timed chess players in the park. Then a young boy talks about his own entry into the world of chess playing, suggests what others can do and openly discusses his path as a chess player. and who he asks an architect about gargoyles and they lead us on a tour of the college, explain what the gargoyles are, why they are there and the differences between gargoyles and chimeras. This interesting video is well produced, highly informational and does indeed bring a piece of NYC, as well as the game of chess to students all over the world.
