Central Park in Autumn might just be it’s absolute peak. Though it is a haven for all New Yorkers and it’s millions of visitors throughout the year, it is during the ‘Fall’ that it really shows off.
On a bright, sunny, November day the colours of the leaves pop against the blue sky. The remote control sailboats are reflected in the shimmering water of the lake, surrounded by floating leaves of all hues.
Visitors wander the paths in sweaters and scarves, and aren’t afraid to run onto the lawns and roll in the leaves.
Grab a hot pretzel, or even a beer from the hot dog vendors and snack sheds and make a day of it. Hire a bike and cycle some of the 843 acres of green oasis in an otherwise concrete metropolis.
Marvel at the views that the apartments on Fifth Avenue in the Upper East Side must have over the park.
Try and stop yourself from frolicking on the grass beneath trees the colours of traffic lights.
Or running up and rolling down the hills to see the various statues installed in the park.
So many lawns are perfect for ball games…
Or just kicking up the leaves…
It’s like a multi-colour carpet.
And everywhere you look, the sun is highlighting it’s favourite spots.
But you are always reminded that you are still in one of the world’s biggest cities.
