Famous quotes containing the words park and/or bay:

    The park is filled with night and fog,
    The veils are drawn about the world,
    Sara Teasdale (1884–1933)

    Baltimore lay very near the immense protein factory of Chesapeake Bay, and out of the bay it ate divinely. I well recall the time when prime hard crabs of the channel species, blue in color, at least eight inches in length along the shell, and with snow-white meat almost as firm as soap, were hawked in Hollins Street of Summer mornings at ten cents a dozen.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
