Ever been to Central Park?
Well, what can I say?
Because we are living near Central Park (West Harlem) for a while, it is a must for us to use every opportunity to visit this huge, green place in middle of this bumping city. An extra plus is the phenomenal weather these past days. It has been very sunny, and luckily it is also still kind of warm.
We use the entrance at Central Park West / 110th Street, so these pictures give you an impression of the northern bit of the park. Central Park is somewhat wilder in the north. Compared to German parks these wilder parts (nature wise) are particularly striking. Don’t know if I had ever seen something similar in Germany, apart from the Wildparks (wildlife parks).
And I love the old-fashioned lanterns on Central Park West – a bit corny I know.
The pond with the duck families is also very lovely, at least now – other well informed people told me that the romantic touch decreases in summer, when the water turns a bright green due to excessive algae. But who cares about that right now – in Indian Summer.
Here are some pictures.
