Our World Tuesday | NYC Central Park and Museum


[Conservatory Water in Central Park]
This is the perfect place for people who wants to be like kids playing with their radio powered sailboats. According the source article, From April through October, children and boat enthusiasts come to navigate radio and wind-powered vessels across the shimmering waters. It’s such a popular destination that writer E.B. White set the whimsical boat scene in his children’s classic, Stuart Little, here. It was recreated in the 1999 film of the same name.

Conservatory Water is also the staging area for a dedicated group of bird watchers that have been tracking the life of Pale Male and his mate Lola, a pair of Hawks, that have made there home on a ledge on a nearby building.

That looks awesome! Despite living in the NYC suburbs for years, I've never yet been to Central Park.

I no longer live in NY, but have many fond memories of Central Park, especially childhood ones with my parents.

Lovely captures.
