  8. Looks like the city dolled itself up for you. Everything is sort of extra clean and sparkly. I love the Alice statue…where is that? I’ll have to take the girls when we go next. And the elms!! They are my favorite. Of course, you’ve seen the ones in Bryant park. They are so beautiful. Like dancers, sort of.

    • Alice is not far from the Metropolitan Museum, just a litte downtown from there, near 5th Avenue. Your daughters will love it. I had to wait ages for it to be free of climbing children to take the photos. I love Bryant Park. I was there this afternoon after I went to the library.

  15. When visited NYC the summer of 1967 there was an outdoor restaurant at the angel fountain in Central Park. I had lunch there with my parents and at the next table was the actress Mildred Dunno (she was 66 at the time) and two very handsome young me at least forty years younger than she. My imagination ran amok and to this day I wonder what what the relationship. It was all so glamorous and exciting to see. The Photos of the fountain and the staircase brought that all vividly back to me. Love it! The song that summer was Up Up And Away In My Beautiful Balloon, the movies were Blow Up and The Taming of The Shrew with Liz and Dick. And everyone on the bus and the subway were (Including me!) reading The Valley of the Dolls.

  21. What a lovely day you had walking through Central Park, though Big Bird looked a little cold to me! 🙂
    My favorite part of Central Park is Bethesda Fountain. Maybe I’ve watched too many movies.
    Isn’t it hard to imagine that there once really were sheep roaming in the sheep meadow?
