We took the bus into NY to fly out to Portugal from JFK(airline points issues and trying to match up tickets dictated the necessity of leaving from NY) We did have a whole afternoon to hangout before we had to be at the airport though, so we spent the hours at Central Park. It was a perfect day for it, sunny but not too hot and not terribly crowded! ...and I got soma amazing photos :)
I'm always amazed how big Central Park is. We strolled, with only small stops to look at ducks, take photos, etc., for 4 hours and only covered a little corner of the Park!
|Central Park and a slice of Manhattan. The red line is what we walked.|
|I love the contrasts! |
The very old 5th Avenue Presbyterian Church against a modern high rise.
|Entering Central Park - Lush organic greens against the hard, steel buildings.|
|An Instagram shot. An adorable gazebo on top of a hill of rocks. |
It was much cuter in person than in this photo!
|I love that you can take a hike on dirt trails with a cityscape backdrop.|
|My son being silly! An urban explorer, lol.|
|Another Instagram shot. The Boat House! |
Tons of boaters out in the "very green" water (you don't wanna fall in that, lol!)
|The boat house area is gorgeous! All arches, stairwells, and fountains.|
|A concert al fresco!|
|An Instagram shot.|
I LOVE this shot, it's just gorgeous with the light coming through the arches!
|Some gorgeous shapes and textures on the architecture!|
|Boaters drifting along.|
|Bridges, Boats, & Buildings :)|
|Huge planters at the ends of the bridge!|
|Me and my son! (I love the camera flip function on my iPhone!)|
