Adventures in Central Park

About two weeks ago I headed in to Manhattan to help move one of my best friends into his new apartment. Being from Long Island, I'm in the city quite a bit and I generally walk along the same routes to get where I'm going. This time, however, I changed it up a bit.

Firstly, I always use Madison Avenue. It's my favorite street in New York and I could just window shop up and down for hours. I usually take Madison all the way up to where I need to be, but after hitting Ladurée (since I'll never skip Ladurée) I headed over towards Central Park. And boy am I glad I did.
Central Park is huge. Let's just start by getting that out of the way. On the way up I walked through and on on the way down I walked along the outside since it was evening (better safe than sorry). According to Siri's scenic route and directions the walk is about four miles each way and despite my poor choice of footwear (seriously, choose comfort over style for this trek) I really enjoyed myself. I'd only seen a small portion of the park in the past, but I had no idea the park had gorgeous, secluded areas like the ones I found.

If you ever get the chance to just spend an afternoon in Central Park wandering around on the various paths and trails I cannot recommend it enough.

There are some more photos of the absolutely beautiful park under the cut.
