It's embarrassing how rarely we get to Central Park when it's not difficult to get to at all. I always forget what fun it is.
So, yesterday we descended the long steps that lead to the pond...
and felt what a difference from the bustle of the street.
It was very GREEN.
Wind ruffled the surface of the water and there were ducks.
What a strange, tall building next to the Essex House!
Of course there were thousands of people there - lots of them taking photos like me.
There was a fun fair with rides...
and The Dairy looking like a Victorian railway station.
A beautiful day for just lying around
or getting cool information from the partially obscured tour guide.
Lots of generic and bad-for-you snacks. YUM.
And the piece-de-resistance - the angel presiding over the round pond with the boating lake beyond.
Now for a short quiz a la Where's Waldo.
Can you find:
1. the bride
2. the two dog walkers
3. the muscle man
4. the boy with the bike helmet
