central parking

One of the best parts of New York (in my humble opinion) is Central Park. I think it’s so wonderful that such a large part of Manhattan has been devoted to green space, especially in the summertime. It’s the perfect place to go for a stroll, though it’s especially crowded with tourists this time of year. There are tons of food vendors, street performers, and people offering pedicab and hansom cab rides, as well as bikes available to rent.

The other day, my friends and I went to enjoy a late breakfast in the park, sunning ourselves on the grass. We had Starbucks in one hand and tiny treats from Baked by Melissa in the other, making for a perfect, sweet snack. Since it was a Sunday, the park was especially busy, and for our enjoyment, we had a view of little kids stumbling up boulders, young couples jogging together, and tourists speaking in all languages frantically taking photographs.

There is something truly magical about this place, and every time I go to Central Park I stumble upon something new. My latest ambition is to go for a bike ride around the park before the summer ends, perhaps this weekend if the weather cooperates.
