Down in the southeast corner of Central Park, between the Gapstow Bridge and the Ice Rink, lies a fenced off section of the park. This would be the Hallett Nature Sanctuary. Typically this area is locked off and you can only get in with a guided tour or class. Last month, they had an open house, so I went over to explore one of the few remaining places of the park I have never set foot in. I learned from the guides that this area is under renovation so that down the line it can be opened up to the public (probably 10 years or so down the line) and that it had gone through some heavy damage from Super Storm Sandy last year. Currently, it is not the most picturesque of spots, but it definitely has potential.
Next week: Back to the b&w shot-a-thon.
