Spring in Central Park

Spring in Central Park, looking south from Bank Rock Bridge heading into the Rambles

Arriving back in New York at this time of year is not exactly a chore. The forsythia and cherries are just blooming and Central Park is as wonderful as ever. This photo was taken yesterday on our daily walk through the Park on the way to work. Just two years ago, this view didn’t exist. The inlet had turned into a swampy mess and the view was blocked by brush and weed trees. Now the new bridge, a reconstruction of Olmsted’s original, looks out onto the vista of the lake and the buildings of Midtown.
