New York: A Slice of Early Summer in Central Park

One thing it’s easy to forget about, or at least not fully appreciate, when you live in New York is just how immense Central Park is. It’s three avenues wide and 51 blocks high – but if you live here, you probably wind up visiting the same little bits again and again. That’s why, when I stopped by the Cooper Hewitt museum this past weekend, located at 91st and 5th, I made sure to pop over to Central Park afterwards.

I rarely visit the Upper East Side portion of the park, and what I found in this new-to-me corner was really lovely! My very favorite thing was that the roses were fully in bloom. While little can top cherry blossom season in Central Park, the roses were quite gorgeous in their own right. And, though it was a gloomy afternoon (that ultimately culminated in a brief downpour), the views of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir were still pretty.

The Bottom Line: Central Park is ENORMOUS. Note to self: make an effort to see more of it!
