Hi friends, welcome back! It seems like forever since I’ve posted about NYC. It’s been a busy summer of traveling, plus it’s been so HOT, so I patiently waited in the a/c until it got cool enough for a trek to Central Park for my summer tour. I took the subway to 110th Street and started my walk at the northernmost entrance. As I looked out to the horizon, all I saw was green. The trees, grass, and ponds were all green. This was a big contrast from all the color from my spring tour.
I went to my favorite spot in the park next, the Conservatory Garden, and I was a bit underwhelmed. I was hoping there would be pretty flowers but all I saw was more green and some brown.
A perfect day in NYC!
I stopped by The Pond but it looked more like Shrek’s Swamp.
The Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir looked beautiful and serene as usual.
Next stop, Belvedere Castle. I found a new spot to take pictures this walk 🙂
Bow Bridge and The Lake are always popular spots. I still need to get on these row boats one day!
I saw so many turtles enjoying the beautiful weather!
Bethesda Fountain looked so beautiful turned on! It was the perfect day for a walk in Central Park.
Jon and I had some pictures taken in Central Park this summer, and it was my first time being back in the park since April. I was amazed at how different it looked from spring. I follow a NYC based photographer on Instagram and she posted that she was looking for a couple to do a test shoot for an upcoming sunset engagement, so I signed Jon and I up. I’d always wanted pictures in Central Park and these were so fun! If you’re looking for a NYC photographer Emily was great!
Stay tuned for part two!
