old New York…..is the new New York


View of the skyline from in Central Park….the further you walk in the park, the less you see the skyscrapers



Breath taking……


The views from The Ramble in Central Park and stunning.


Walking through The Ramble in the park…..nature at it’s best. Can’t even here a siren (maybe faintly)


where the flowers grow in The Ramble…..


Alice in Wonderland Statue


The Boat House in Central Park


Row row row your boat……



Sail a boat on the pond…..


take in a little yachting……



In 1867, one of the designers of Central Park, (Calvert Vaux) decided to develop this area by building Belvedere Castle on the top of the rock. It overlooks the Croton Reservoir, which is the site of the Great Lawn.

ok….so I have posted Central park photo’s before, but I can’t help it! It’s the most beautiful place in New York City.

We had a picnic there for the 4th of July weekend and it just it’s so tranquil. You can still faintly hear the police sirens in the background, but if you take a moment….you forget you are in this crazy concrete jungle of grind and hustle. It is the place New Yorkers can take off their shoes, feel the earth under their feet (even for a few minutes) Are all your problems gone……well no. But, for a moment, you are transported to a bygone era of beautiful structures, gigantic trees, turtles and fish in the ponds, colorful, fragrant flowers, music, laughter and nature.

Hope you guys had a wonderful Independance Day!
