Sunday in the Park

On our last day in New York last October, John took this picture of the beautiful, pastoral landscape of Cedar Hill in Central Park speckled with sunbathers and picnicers. The Park was designed by 19th century master landscapers, Frank Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.
As we passed the Boat House and Lake, I took this scene of rowers below the twin towers of the San Remo apartments.
Here is the Lake and its rowboats.
A jewel of Central Park is the Bathseda Fountain beside the Lake on the Mall.
The Angel of the Waters (1868), sculpted by Emma Stebbins, stands atop the fountain, blessing the waters.
Nearby the Sheep Meadow was full of Sunday loungers. 
Eventually our crossing of the park took us past this underpass and into Columbus Circle at the south-east end of the Park. Beloved by New Yorkers, the Park is always worth a leisurely saunter.
