I had been waiting and waiting for autumn to get here. Namely because last year it never really showed up and I didn’t get the best pictures of the changing leaves. This year, nature kept holding it back and/or raining all the time. I was finally able to get to Central Park the weekend before Halloween (also now the weekend before Hurricane Sandy) where it was very cloudy out, but I didn’t care. I was going to go see changing leaves. Apparently there was also a pumpkin festival in the park that morning, but I went in the afternoon before going to a show. Since I have discussed most of these areas in previous posts, here are the pictures with captions and that’s it.
I stayed in the southern end of the park and revisited the Pond in the Southeast corner by Fifth Ave (also FAO Schwartz and the Apple store). I have always loved this quiet area which also houses the Hallett Nature Sanctuary and is just south of the Central Park Zoo. Here is found the Gapstow Bridge and the Pond. TV viewers might recognize this area as well, as I believe the Gapstow is seen in the background of the latest episode of Doctor Who, along with quite a few other NYC-based TV shows and films.
That wraps it up for this seasonal entry. Next we will probably return to New Orleans for a cemetery entry. Not sure which one yet. See you all next week!
