The Pond, Autumn

The East 62nd Street entrance to Central Park is home to The Pond. Located steps away from The Plaza HotelGrand Army Plaza and the 5th Ave Apple Store, this entrance offers a quick escape from the hectic rush of the holiday shopping season.  If you’re visiting NYC you’ll probably already have your camera in hand and you’ll be glad you do.  If you’re a local, make a point to bring your camera to The Pond and be a tourist in your own city. Reds and yellows abound and envelope you in their beauty, allowing you to relax from the frenzy outside of their autumnal shelter.  Over The Pond is the Gapstow Bridge. Originally built in 1874 and then rebuilt in 1896, this curved stone structure serves as a great anchor or backdrop for any of your photographs. Then, once you’re well rested you might enjoy some ice skating at the rink nearby for a full Central Park experience.

Autumn in the Pond is beautiful, especially with the red leaves scattered all around the ground, as well the vibrant colorful ones on the tree just about to fall.

Autumn is Sammy’s favorite time of the year.
