Inspired by the book, Wanderlust : A History of Walking by Rebecca Solnit I decided to explore some of Central Parks nature trails known as the Ramble. Today I was only able to cover a few sites but when I go on vacation next week there will be more trails to discover! I saw some of Shakespeare’s Garden, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre (no performances), Belvedere Castle (My Favorite!!), you can climb up the stairs inside for some spectacular views, Turtle Pond, (No I did not see Turtle the first! [They must be hiding], a statue dedicated to the King of Poland, the famous Obelisk aka Cleopatra’s Needle, a statue of Hamilton, & Mr. Bubble Guy! All in all a fantastic day for Rambling! Even though I’m a born, bred and raised New Yorker, loving the city with it’s vibe and energy as I get older I’m drawn more and more to nature with all it’s bucolic and rustic moments. Central Park is an oasis that slows the pace and revives weary New Yorkers with all it’s beauties and treasures.
The New York Historical Society was closed for the Labor Day Holiday however I have vacation coming up next week so I hope to return for a visit.
