What a breathtaking view of Manhattan: Central Park is indeed what busy city dwellers need to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy the great outdoor right in the middle of the concrete jungle. Sure there were many tourists walking around with their cameras, but Central Park is the place for native new yorkers to come catch some sun, roller blade with friends, or just sit on the big rocks and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Now if you walk further into the park, you will come to this stunning square with a lot of architectural details. For someone who is a sucker for traditional stone work, I was truly in heaven. Just check out that quatrefoil inspired motif with a bloom right in the middle!
Here is the famous fountain and a pigeon flying right next to the angel. Did you make a wish? I did!
Out of all of the murals, this one is my favourite: mama bird with chicks by her nest. It gives me a sense of calm, serenity, and warmth.
Ahh ... the Central Park Boathouse. I didn't the chance to take a boat ride or have a meal at the restaurant this time, but I will definitely be checking them out when I am in town with Chris.
Have you been to Central Park? Did you take the boat ride and try out the Boathouse restaurant? I would love to hear about your experience at Central Park and would love to know what else to check out the next time I am in town!
