Winter Explorations in Central Park
Location: New York City
Living in New York City I often take Central Park for granted. During the summer it’s usually crowded with so many people and during the winter…well, it’s generally really cold. As soon as the cold weather rolls around every year I’d just as soon hibernate until Spring, but my recent walk through Central Park with my girlfriend renewed my love of Central Park. I just want to share just a few of the photos I was able to snap before my hands turned to icicles!
The iconic horse drawn carriages outside of Central Park. Before they are banned in NYC, I think I need to do it at least once in my lifetime. Perhaps soon…
The entrance to Bethesda arcade, with Kirsten Alana at the top of the steps.
The ornate interior of the Bethesda Arcade. There are approximately 15,000 colorful patterned encaustic tiles made in England.
Bethesda Fountain, with the famous Angel of the Waters up top. Even in the snow with the fountain waters turned off for the winter, it’s quite lovely.
Bow Bridge is the second oldest cast iron bridge in America and is the muse for many photographers.
I adore the graceful shape of the bridge, including the iconic The Sam Remo buildings in the background.
One of eight cast-iron urns installed in 2008 as replicas of the originals that had disappeared by the early 1920s.
I hope you enjoyed some of my photos from my winter time exploration in Central Park! If you enjoyed this post and want to see more photos, check out Kirsten Alana’s blog post.
