Central Park, New York City

Location: New York City

I think I have found one of my most favourite places ever! Central Park in New York City is really the best of both worlds. Sitting right in the middle of an enormous concrete jungle, is a surprisingly serene and calm environment where you can let your mind wander and find inspiration. We picked a beautiful day to explore only a small portion of the park and sat for a picnic and people watching.

People watching can be the most fascinating exercise, especially in a city like New York. Depending on where you are walking in Central Park, the mixture of people is so interesting and varied. There is the tourist hippie couple taking photos laying down on the grass, the young couples with their babies, the international students making a short film which for some reason involves wrapping each other in a giant roll of bubble wrap around a tree. Then scattered in between is the personal training session and romantic picnic dates. We decided to venture further up the east side of Central Park where we finally ran into the typical Upper East Sider nannies and soccer Mums. Just a usual day in Central Park I suppose.

With so much to do and see in Central Park, there is a little corner for everyone to explore.
