Autumn in NYC Central Park

city reflectionWhen I lived in New York City, we seldom went into the park. It was dangerous at night and during the day we had other things to do. I did go to a free play one summer at the Delacorte, but that was about it. However, recently we were visiting for some theater R&R and took a morning’s stroll.

People always talk about the fall colors in New England but the leaves turn in NY as well. I want to note that although the fuchsia tree is quite striking, I didn’t push the colors in these pictures. They are WISIWIG (what you see is what you get – a real IT term…)

It was a glorious day; lots of pedicabs. Expensive pedicabs – the signs said “3.75 per minute per ride.”

We passed a couple of benches that had little plaques – probably the benches were financed by the plaque owners. You can guess the quote applicable to my life…hint: my husband’s nickname isn’t Grubby!

I couldn’t resist a couple of shots of buildings. The art deco decorations were on a 6 or 8 story building, between each floor. Above almost every one, in the window, was an air conditioner. The owls were on another window. There are so many beautiful old buildings in the city and it appeared that many had been newly cleaned. There was also a bunch of construction midtown, new replacing the old. The city has changed a lot since I lived there, perhaps for the better…
