A daisy growing out the edge of a concrete platform.

I was walking around Gantry Plaza State Park in Queens New York when I got to the edge of the platform looking into Manhattan. I saw this daisy growing out of the edge and thought it was ironic for something wild to be growing in a place surrounded by iron and concrete. I took the photo because I was wondering where are its roots and that I couldn't touch it because the railing was its prison bars.
