Central Park

img_9945I spent a few days in New York recently, and took a walk through Central Park. It’s so amazing to have this immense green space in the heart of such a large city. What I also love about it is the many smaller spots within the park, some of them bucolic and others bustling.

img_9932This is one of those places where I often think I’ve seen some of the views before in movies – probably because I have. img_9933The fall weather was perfect for walking.

img_9937I took a lot of pictures of trees. This big beech has endured some carving.

img_9940There are many ginkgo trees in the park, and they were resplendent – almost an electric gold.

img_9925The Japanese anemones were still in bloom, although they took a back seat to the spectacular fall foliage.

img_9936I am always struck by how much green space there is in this densely-populated city, and how people get out into it. This is a great urban treasure, worth repeat visits. There is always something new to discover.

      I’ll bet you’re homesick. It is definitely one of the world’s great cities. I spent just a few intense days there, got my culture fix and came home.
