My first year in New York City was dominated by the pandemic. 2020 turned out to be the year of ‘crazy’. But one thing kept me sane during the darkest months, when the streets were empty and the only sound in a normally busy city were the ambulance sirens… I had Central Park.
The following photos were all taken by me, Jodie Brownlee.
The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater near Shakespeare’s Garden. Bow Bridge with the fall foliage of The Rambles beyond and potted chrysanthemums. One of the first trees to change by Delacorte Theater.
Beautiful gold trees by the Daniel Webster Monument. Ducks swim among the fallen leaves by Oak Bridge over Bank Rock Bay. The fiery orange foliage on the weeping branches of a tree by the Gapstow Bridge, The Pond.
Fall colors behind Bow Bridge. Painters at The Lake. Fall foliage on Cherry Hill by the stairs to Wagner Cove.All taken at twilight.
This tree was so bright it seemed to shine with its own inner light.
The Rambles covered in leaves and the river that flows into the waterfall near The Ramble Cave.
And when all the leaves have fallen, winter is around the corner with its own beauty.
Thank you for visiting. If you have a favorite fall foliage location in Central Park that I haven’t included here, let me know.
