The Middle of the Park – 72nd Street Cross Road
We are going to start in the middle of park entering at the 72nd street cross-road. It really doesn’t matter from which side of the park you enter. You will meet plenty of people and it is quite safe during the non-evening hours.
The most prominent place in the park may very well be the Bethesda Terrace, it is the first structure erected in the park.
The Lake is bounded by
- Terrace and
- The west side of the park.
Walk along the western path from the Terrace to the most photographed bridge – Bow Bridge.
To the east is the Conservatory Pond. During nice weather you can rent radio controlled sailboats. To the west is Strawberry Fields.
Hint: There is a snack bar and rest rooms at the Conservatory Pond. Also, there is a restaurant and rest rooms at the Boathouse.
The following are pictures taken in this area… have fun finding them and I am sure you will enjoy finding your discoveries. Remember that Central Park is beautiful during every season.
