This is in Central Park (southeast corner). It is picturesque with trees and bushes arranged nicely and of course the New York skyline in the background. Definitely a place for some pictures

This part of central park is beautiful. A good place to hang around for a while enjoying the water away from the big buildings close by.

When we visited this place, it was heavily raining. It is located in the Central park and surrounded by trees. Nice place for relaxing and spending time with families.

This pond streches over the southern edge of the park. It is tranquil and is surrounded by walking pavements. People stroll around it for a good view or a relaxing fresh air
