New York Autumn - Central Park - Bow Bridge and the Lake

—-

On autumn days

when grey skies

brush across the water

with icy fingertips

and tree branches

cling to their 

tattered foliage

the wind plays

a lullaby

for summer:

a slow adagio

whose notes

linger 

with a warm vibrato

on every fallen

leaf.

One of the most beautiful places in New York City to enjoy autumn is Central Park. With over 800 acres of a variety of natural landscapes, Central Park comes alive in the autumn as it prepares to hibernate for the winter. 

This was taken on a moody autumn day with my Sony A99 while I was wandering around in The Ramble. The Ramble is a 38 acre woodland with meandering paths. If you follow it out towards some of the main paths, you will eventually come across this beautiful view of Bow Bridge.

New York City - Autumn - Central Park- Poet’s Walk at Dusk

—-

Autumn walks

hand in hand

with winter

as memories of summer

send a rush of warmth

to its face.

And as autumn

blushes in gold and yellow

winter’s icy whispers

tickle the tips of

its ears

and the trees

sway as dusk

falls over the city.

—-

Taken on a recent walk through Central Park with my Sony A99. This is Central Park’s Poet’s Walk also known as the Literary Walk located in a section of the park known as The Mall. The Mall is the only straight line in Central Park and its crowning feature are the many elm trees that hang over the walk forming a canopy.

New York Autumn - East Village - Alphabet City


—-


Autumn clung to the city:

fingertips 

red from the heat 

of a flame

that couldn’t  

be contained.

And the city rose

out of this

fiery embrace:

a phoenix

clinging to the earth

as winter

waiting on the broad arms 

of extinguishing winds

looked on.


—- 

Late autumn is full of tension of a kind that only rears its head once a year. It’s the vivid last breath that nature takes before winter spends a long time making itself comfortable in the city. This was taken earlier this morning with the Sony QX100 and my iPhone.

New York Autumn - Central Park - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir


—-


Autumn brushes itself across Central Park with the most beautiful brushstrokes every year. Continuing my exploration of things to do in New York City that involve getting lost in New York City’s outdoor landscapes, I found a listing on Sōsh, an app that focuses on things to do in New York City, that referenced taking a “love-inducing walk in Central Park” *. How could I possibly resist?

Autumn is quite possibly one of my favorite times of year in New York City and hiking through Central Park’s 800+ acres of natural paths and landscapes is such a perfect way to fall madly in love with the city. 

This part of Central Park is adjacent to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. The vantage point is from one of Central Park’s bridle paths which I photograph a lot in the spring. I love this view of the reservoir in the autumn though since the trees frame the towers of The San Remo.
