41 - Conservatory of Flowers
If the idea of making love really close to a lot of people who can't
quite see you is appealing, head to the vast lawn in front of the
Conservatory of Flowers (shown on the front cover of this book). There
are a few islands of trees scattered on this large lawn, a couple of
which afford some degree of privacy.
One option is the large group of trees in front of the
left end of the Conservatory as you face it from JFK Drive. From the
lawn, it is very difficult to see what, or who, is inside this grove
of trees. This affords some degree of privacy, despite the proximity
of the masses. There are convenient ways to enter this stand of trees
from both the street side and from the side facing the Conservatory.
Unfortunately, this convenience is also the one weakness of this
place...other people may venture into the grove, as well.
If you prefer a grove that is unlikely to have any
other people walking through, consider instead the grove to the far
east end of the lawn. This is a smaller grove of trees, directly
behind the statue of President Garfield (who had the misfortune of
becoming an ex-president after a bit of a run-in with an assassin).
This grove has no obvious path leading into it, making it more likely
yours alone to enjoy. The center of the grove is mostly but not
completely obscured from view, so this might be a good day to wear any
"camo" lingerie you happen to own.
