Fall in New York is just exceptional. In the city, surrounded by skyscrapers, you only get small glimpses of the fiery leaves every now and then. It’s not until you reach Central Park, that you get the full experience. There, you enter a golden coppery space in the middle of the concrete jungle, and you’re left in awe of the beauty of mother nature.
The trees, painted in shades of yellow, orange and burgundy that you’ve never seen before, surround you with every step. The glimmering leaves falling from above, create the most beautiful showers of gold.
With a cup of hot tea, or cocoa perhaps, in hand to keep you warm, stroll the park and admire its majesty. Every now and then you’ll feel the urge to stop and just savor the moment.
Just keep your eyes on your belongings, so your phone doesn’t end up stolen like mine… Even though I had this misfortunate accident, the beauty of our surroundings kept my spirit high and a constant smile on my face.
Although there will be a lot of people with the same idea, it feels like you have the whole park to yourself.
I’m lucky that I have seen this park covered in white (see it here), green and now copper. Although it’s breathtaking in all seasons, I have to say that autumn suits it best.
If visiting Central Park is on your bucket list, I’d recommend it during fall. Words can’t quite express its magnificence, it’s something you’ll have to experience yourself!
