Central Park

Central Park New York, NY New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (212) 310-6600 Central Park. So gorgeous and relaxing on a warm, sunny day like today. Green. Nature. Peace.

The post got really good responses from viewers via Tumblr here - 70 shy of 15,000 notes currently (you all are making me feel like a thousand bucks...I'm going to explode by dancing) and I thought an update was definitely necessary, you know, a tweak here and there.
