NYC Journal: Central Park

Fosco and Oz were a little worried that it would be too cold to talk a long walk in Central Park. Luckily, it wasn't (although it wasn't warm). Every time Fosco visits Central Park, he marvels again: the contribution that Central Park makes to livability in Manhattan is hard to overestimate. If only every mega-city had a park like this. I mean, look at it!

The doubled towers of the Time Warner Center look pretty good:

The Plaza Hotel is one of the most beautiful buildings in this country:

Make way for ducks! If you think they're cold, look again. Those are the fattest ducks I've ever seen.

This one's our favorite. No swimming for him--he's no sucker!

The reason Fosco most wanted to walk through Central Park is that Oz (born and raised in the Sandwich Islands) has never played in the snow. So Fosco wanted to watch Oz play in the snow. Fosco thought it would be cute and he was right. Want to see how cute?

Awww. Fosco melts every time!

More NYC stories/pix to come.
