I took these this afternoon. They were taken by the Reservoir-westside, between 91st and 93rd streets. I was so busy worrying about getting a clear shot I didn't realise that the first one was a little slanted. Smile



This one facing slightly northeast.



Facing southwest



Southeast



Towards 92nd-93rd streets. We're on CPW & 91st at the east end of 91st.

Even though the rain washed most of the snow away, I still think CP looks rather pretty. Smile

Hello there and welcome!

And Cat - these are fantastic pictures! It must be nice to live so close to the world's most famous park! And might I add "brrr!"

Oh Cat, these are so lovely-- thanks for posting them! Smile New York is such a romantic place. When I see CP, I always think of Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal walking thru it in autumn, in 'When Harry Met Sally'. That, or Gene Kelly's exuberant 'Dancing' ballet from 'Hello Dolly'. *sigh* Smile

About that long walkway, tho-- good Bob, don't they salt that?? Surprised Or is there no access to it?

I have not been to Central Park since I was about ... seven. Shocked I need to go back, though that slushiness frightens me!!! (This from someone who hiked through Sleddale in late December ...)

Thanks, ladies! You should see the 72nd street cross-through in summer! That IS beautiful!

Maybe, it's just me, Melissa, but I had to giggle at CP being the world's most famous park! Someone mentions the world's most famous park to me and I immediately think of Hyde Park in London! But, I see where people would regard CP as the most famous. Smile

Teri and Mikoto: It's not as treacherous as it looks. No, the paths aren't salted or sanded, but there are plenty of bare spots on the concrete to walk on and plenty of spots with just snow. I made my way quite easily by hanging onto the fences at times. I never slipped once and I'm a crippled old lady with one leg shorter than the other and smooth-soled shoes! Oh, and there's plenty of access to the walk round the Reservoir all year.

One interesting thing about Central Park-particularly in summer, is that you can walk a quarter block into it and you can't see any of the tall buildings or hear any sounds of traffic or anything. It's as though you're in the middle of nowhere. Walk back that quarter block and there's the city-all lively and vibrant! Extraordinary sensation!
