Forest Park, the day before the 2009 Inauguration, draws the hardy and the playful. The Jee family, residents of Hampton Court, adds a happy splash of color, as parents and children frolic in the snow, while a wan winter sun caresses the statue of Job by the sculptor Natan J. Rapoport, which has stood in imploring vigil near the Overlook since 1987. Sylvia Fuhrman, a long-time former president of the Kew Gardens Civic Association, donated the work to the City of New York in 1986.
