NYC: Central Park
Of the few famous sightseeing spots we visited in New York, Central Park was my favourite. TV shows and movies always seem to focus on the dangerous side of Central Park so it was nice to discover just what a lovely refuge the park is! I'd love to see it in autumn.
The day we went it was cloudy but comfortable. This was the Sunday, before the extreme heat mid week. We had intended to walk through the park to The Met but we were enjoying our leisurely stroll too much and didn't feel like being cooped up indoors. Oh well, maybe if we go again, we'll be more cultured.
Attracted to anything literary, I of course had to stop and see the Hans Christian Andersen statue that looks out over the pond in the first picture.
I loved that there were actually words engraved into the book on the statue. How appropriate for Hans to be reading The Ugly Duckling.
What's your favourite place in New York?
