Central Park On A Gray And Wintry Day

At 83th St and Central Park West there is a great swell of stone behind the wall to the Park which I have never noticed before. It's just a few blocks north of the Museum of Natural History, and it is literally as old as Manhattan, but I've never noticed it before. So what did I do? Like any good boy would, I climbed it! Here are the views from that lofty perch ...

After being up there, I couldn't go back, so in I proceeded. And discovered a secret garden! I call it "Lonely Park"

Down a winding path I discovered how beautiful ivy is on a grey, near-winter's day.

Midway in I discovered a very sad fact. The Central Park Conservancy decided to fence off all the lawns of summer. I could only travel the concrete paths!! So I took wistful pics of The Great Lawn and Belvedere Castle overlooking it.

Just after that, I greeted a friendly, but appropriately squirrelly squirrel

Which led me out the east side of the Park to 5th Ave, and the Metropolitan Museum's backyard. I had intentions of taking the yellow and green subway lines for a roundabout, slow boat back home when to my great surprise, I ran into the Governor. Correct that. Successfully avoided the Governor.
