Central Park Spring Blossom – Part II

Here is another post from my favorite place in NYC, especially during the Spring: the Central Park! I try to make a walk to the park at least once a week. On each visit I notice how one blossom has come to an end only to make room for some new flowers. The magnolia blossom is now pretty much over. The Yoshino Cherry Trees that were still blooming a week ago on the east side have made room to the Kwanzan Cherry bloom on the west side of the water reservoir. The ground under the trees is covered with the petals like virgin snow. My new favorite this Spring is the English Garden / Conservatory Garden on the east side at 104th Street where a majority of these photos were taken. It is such a peaceful place to relax and meditate in this buzzing city. Now is the perfect time to get your portraits and head shots taken in the most beautiful place in the greatest city in the world.

Spring Blossom In Central Park

Spring time is my favorite time in Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy does such an excellent job taking care of the park’s 250 acres of lawns, 24,000 trees, 150 acres of lakes and streams and 80 acres of woodlands. April is the best time to enjoy the magnolia and cherry blossom. Last week I decided to walk around the whole park, starting from the south-east corner northward to Harlem and then walking back southward on the west side. I’ve never actually been north of the water reservoir so I really enjoyed visiting some new places, such the Conservatory Garden around 104th Street on the East side and the North Woods up in Harlem. Spring is also a fantastic time to spot some of the more than 200 species of birds that make their annual migration via New York. Central Park is the one place where you can distance yourself from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan life without actually leaving the city.
