Central Park

An oasis in the middle of one of the biggest, busiest cities on earth

On New Years Day we decided to take a Gray Line Tour of the City. For $50 you can take a hop on hop off tour and use the ticket for 48 hours. We decided this might be a great way to get around.

Unfortunately when we got to the ticket booth they were closed. Personally, I was thrilled. I prefer to see a new place on my feet. I feel I can get more of a sense of what it's like from my own perspective. So we started walking and found ourselves in Central Park.

Central Park is 50 blocks from one end to the other and we walked about halfway around the entire park. Next time I want to do the whole thing. It was a gorgeous day. You couldn't have ordered up better weather from a menu! The sun was shining, it was crisp and chilly, but not cold. People were out enjoying the park with their pets and families. It was an awesome start to the new year.

Anyone up for a game of chess
