  New York - May 2012

Ah, New York! Spend Sunday afternoon in Central Park, what do you think? I take you on a ride, in pictures.

Central Park: 4km long, 800m wide

Map of Central ParkIn one afternoon, with good walking shoes, well motivated, we can go all Central Park: it is a huge rectangle of greenery that stretches for 4km long and 800m wide, in the heart of New York - or more exactly Manhattan.

Recommended breaks with ice cream vendors and traveling hot dogs, just to get your energy back on the road!

But to enjoy it, it is better to come back several times, and take the time to explore one by one the different parts of the park ...

It's really huge, Central Park! ! !

I will not list the curiosities of the places, which are in all the guides of voyage ... Below, in addition, some useful links on Central Park:

So here are some pictures of my "little" walk in Central Park, which goes back to Sunday, May 13, 2012. A beautiful spring afternoon, sweet and sunny, which I already have the nostalgia ...

Everywhere, people who run or pedal, or who roam quietly, like me. We come here to relax, play sports, have a picnic with family or friends. It reigns in this rectangle of green amid the skyscrapers of Manhattan an atmosphere both urban and peaceful, really very pleasant.
