Central Park and the UWS

Good job, New York. You really got it right with Central Park. As you can see we had lovely weather over the weekend (although it was a bit too windy) and people were out and about enjoying their gorgeous city. We only saw a tiny portion of the grounds, but it's already one of my favorite places. The photo above is of the Sheep Meadow, which was bustling with happy families and adorable puppies. We also walked up to Strawberry Fields so that I could see the John Lennon Imagine memorial. It was an incredibly moving experience. People were gathered around and singing along to his songs as a fan played the tunes on his guitar.

Tim was happy to see so many runners and next time we'll take our own jog through the park. There was no way our tired legs would have let us enjoy that during this trip. So we took a leisurely stroll instead. 

After the park we visited the Dakota and explored the Upper West Side. There were some great shops and beautiful walk up brick homes. We also stopped by Magnolia bakery and indulged in a pumpkin cheesecake with a ginger walnut crust. It was A-MAZ-ING. 

More to come!
