When I look at this picture today I am struck by how much it resembles America as it used to be before the socialists decided that no place should be spared their loving and caring attentions.
Somehow, in this giant city of millions of diverse people, all of whom share access, nobody ever sold out Central Park and decided to clear it, develop it, mine it, build on it or let a million people camp there forever.
I've never been in Central Park. But it ain't over, yet.ReplyDelete
It's a nice place to spend a day. The hard part is finding the time because there is so much to see and do in NYC.Delete
And so many great places to EAT. NYC is... by far... the best restaurant town in all of these United States. I used to love to "do" bid'niz trips there.Delete
My philosophy is to visit the Park first and then the Cloisters . . . maybe the other way around. They are two don't miss parts of NYC for me.ReplyDelete
We used to take the subway to the Battery and then walk around and go up the Towers. As we used to say, from there we could then go uptown. When we go, we'll have plan a day for the park.Delete
Several years back I along with several mates visited NYC, where we spent a few hours each day in Central Park; cycling or running off excess alcohol and calories from the huge choice of eateries. The 'Park' is a true jewel in the crown of NYC, and long may it remain green and open to the people. I will be back for more of the same, and very soon...ReplyDelete
It's a really nice park. I like those in London, Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and a handful of other smaller places but it still boggles my mind that somehow Central Park has been kept almost intact for so long that an entire giant city grew around it without encroaching. That smacks of elves living in New York City.Delete
