NYC – Central Park

 

I was planning on making this a picture post only for “Wordless Wednesday”, but who am I kidding? I’ve never taken part in Wordless Wednesday. Sorry, but I always have something to say ;)

 

We probably took a good chunk of the pictures we brought home from New York in Central Park. I was astounded by how massive this “park” actually is… I remember taking a stroll through it with my friends my freshman year of high school, we took a couple of pictures and thought ‘well, that’s it, we’ve seen Central Park.’

How ridiculous and naive of me…

I had to Google it just now to find the actual acreage of it and again I was blown away. 843 acres with 58 miles of walking paths, 9,000 park benches and 26,000 trees.

Whoa.

All in the middle of New York City. It seems a little impossible, but I’ve got the pictures to prove it!

 

My love and I…

We entered the park right next to Trump Tower.

{Any Apprentice fans out there? I know we were just a little excited to see this building!}

Some people can’t just have their picture taken. They have to perform a trick worthy of a picture instead…

Here we are sitting at the top of the little “castle” pictured above:

I H.A.D. TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS KID’S FRO!!!

Can you really blame me?

It was windy and we were trying to take advantage of it in pictures… instead of “windy” though, it just came out “dorky”!

Nick, bank robber, or Survivor Man?

There goes Survivor Man jumping off a cliff again…

This has to be the longest bench I’ve ever seen – it goes MUCH further than you can see here – maybe a mile even(?)

Is it me, or do we look like crime suspects in a lot of these photos?

Here I am, caught red-headed (!) breaking an entering:

Of course we didn’t make it through hardly a fourth of the park and we only walked by the zoo. I’ve said it once about the city, and I’ll say it again: We’ll be back!

  3. 1. If you guys were all bundled up, I'm thinking that bride was CUH. RAY. ZEE.
    2. Is the little stone arch where Nick was being a monkey the same one that Miss Piggy chased that purse robber guy through on her roller skates? I think perhaps...
    3. Love all the flowers and the beautiful trees. You guys were there at the perfect time, it seems.
    4. Now I want to go!

  15. I love that your husband is a good sport and into your tomfoolery! I'm going to start adopting your crazy pose picture idea because I hate to see myself in pictures. At least I'd get a good laugh later.

  17. Beautiful photos! First, your hubs reminds me of Justin Timberlake a little with that hat on... Second, some trivia for you. That building on Central Park West with the 2 towers rising up... that's the San Remo... it's where Bono lives and at least when I lived there, so did the CEO of Goldman Sachs. Hope you had fun!
