Unfortunately, I won't be able to get back to New York City until the fall, Casimira, but hopefully I can make more regular visits once I've settled into retirement. This would be a nice time of year to be up there.
Terrific photos - Just caught up to this thread. It is so long ago that I walked in Central Park I don't remember a thing about it except recognising Tavern On The Green when I walked past it. I love that iron bridge with the curled in' feet!
I was hoping to see some fall color on this trip, but it's still a bit early in the season. This is the closest I've seen so far.
It's nice to be in New York when school is in session. There were lots of kids running cross country in groups, and I even saw one class of middle school art students sketching across from the Guggenheim.
I think it is going to be a late fall this year, we still have green leaves here! This afternoon and evening I was listening to the shrieks of delight of kids being pulled around the lake on tubes! In my 20 years on this lake I have never heard such a thing in October!
htmb I like photo #1 in reply #78. I like the balance of the photo, between the water, buildings and sky.
The weather certainly has been very warm. After the rain moved out Sunday night the cold weather finally arrived, so the leaves should get a boost towards changing to all those beautiful colors. Unfortunately, I'll miss seeing them.
There is another pond with a fountain on the opposite side of the gardens. It's atmosphere is not as contemplative.
Exiting the formal gardens, I walked towards the lake at the northeastern section of the park.
