Here’s Looking at You, JP: Clockwise or counterclockwise, which way do you walk around Jamaica Pond?

The first two times I sat on a bench at Jamaica Pond and counted how many people were going left or right, one direction edged out the other by a statistically insignificant margin. I figured there was probably little difference. But I continued my count and, after 10 more two-hour sittings, the findings were decisive with one direction predominating every time, often by a wide margin. In total, 25 percent more folks turn right when they reach the path and proceed in a counterclockwise direction.
