Postcard from an autumn day in Central Park

October 24, 2013 in New York City,Places,Postcards,United States

Fall is quickly growing on me as my favorite season in New York City. There’s something about the crisp blue skies and the sun shining as the leaves change color and the temperatures begin to drop–and there’s no better place to enjoy the fall colors than Central Park.

I spent last Sunday reading The New York Times and soaking up the sunshine on a grassy knoll in Central Park. As I wandered away from the tourist crowds–I’ve found a nice little spot up around 81st Street that’s off the main track–I passed the couples in rowboats, the reflection of the trees, the leaves falling and the occasional tree in full-blown fall colors. Such a perfect afternoon!

I only recently discovered Levain, but it’s now a necessity whenever I’m up near Central Park: their chocolate chip walnut cookies are served warm and crumbly and are just to-die-for delicious. The line may be long, but it moves quickly–and the cookies are hearty enough to be called a meal!

What’s your favorite photo of Central Park in the fall?
