Central Park Mall

If you've traveled this far into Central Park, you will have noticed a number of things. It's an amazing park - a triumph in urban landscaping. It's quite large. It's remarkably varied and there are spots like this one where you can't see any urban structures at all - very bucolic. And you could use a rest. So I recommend sitting on one of the benches here in the central spine of the park - this beautiful wide esplanade known as The Mall and Literary Walk, flanked with quadruple rows of tremendous old growth American elm trees, forming an enormous tunnel of green. Stately. Another look here...

An amazing park for sure. It's wonderful how the vision of the naturalists of centuries past has endured and proven itself such a valid concept.

What would New York be without Central Park?

The Olmstead brothers had a big hand in designing lots of it I believe. They also designed lots of parks here in Seattle.

Yes, everything you say is true. I often felt that Central Park was somehow an essential spot of respite in every New Yorker's subconsious mind.
