Snapshot: Summer 7



The Pool in Central Park is beautiful any time of year, but during the summer months, it's a lush, emerald wonderland. I took this photo last summer; this year, the Pool's idyllic landscape is richer, greener and even more spectacular, if you can imagine. Since we spend our summers in the city — including weekends, when many city residents leave town — we find ourselves in Central Park at least four or five times a week. The Pool, which is located in the northwest portion of Central Park, is the perfect spot to while away languid summer evenings — or to take a meditative break, lie on the grass and gaze at clouds before heading home from a museum. One additional amazing feature: the Pool is never crowded. Ever. At most, we'll encounter eight or ten people during our time there. Incredible.

If you visit the Pool — especially in the summer — be prepared. Your head might explode from all the gorgeousness.

I love the pool in Central Park. This is a beautiful photograph of it. It's amazing that it's rarely crowded but wonderful, a real treat in this bustling city!

I've been in NY only twice - it's a long way from Norway - and I absolutely adore it, Central Park included. You're making me long to go back... immediately!
(ps. the word verification says "cycle" but I think would be a tad difficult re the Atlantic Ocean)

It would be an honor to have exploded near the pool at Central Park in NYC in the summertime. This is incredible. Thank you for sharing it with us!
