Ode To Summer- Central Park In July

Just as the summer is ending and our glorious sunshine filled days are dwindling for now, I’d like to share with you the results of two enchanted walks in my favorite Central Park. www.centralparknyc.org.

The pictures start with scenes of lovely houses landscaped with flowers on the Upper East Side on my walk towards the Park.

Once in the park, we proceed on the Park Drive East, viewing 5th Avenue (also called Museum Mile in this neighborhood) and along the Bridle Path, next to the Reservoir. The non-residential buildings in the pictures are of course the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Guggenheim  Museum , www.guggenheim.org, The Cooper-Hewwit National Design Museum www.cooperhewitt.org, and the Jewish Museum www.thejewishmuseum.org.

In this series of pictures the emphasis is also on the fabulous bridges that are especially found on the bridle path that encircles the reservoir. You can tell which one is my very favorite as I have several shots of it, including one where the tree near it mimics the shape of the art nouveau bridge itself.

After the Bridges and around the Bridle path, the views continue from West Side buildings, back to the path down the East Side to the Storytelling corners and the toy boat lake.

Then we’re on to pictures of the East Side buildings.

Lastly there are shots from other days of the lake from the perspective of being on the West Side, looking towards the East.

I hope that you enjoy the slide show as much as I did sharing my views.
