Next to the first troubles, there were of course beautiful moments on Monday night too. We decided to visit Central Park. It is only within a stone’s throw from our hotel – the Park 79 hotel. On the map you will have a small overview.
We took the advantage and walked to and around one of the bigger lakes (you can see a part of it on the map in the upper part). It is called: „Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir“ and you are not allowed to swim there. Why we do not know, but we guess that it has something to do with the drinking water supply in New York. Nevertheless it is very beautiful perfect for photos.
Well, we walked around the entire lake and you know we were by no means alone! Half of New York runs and dashes around the lakes and all in the same direction! When we were there they ran counter clockwise. Some were very fast and sportiv, some panting and steaming, some chatting with co-runners, some listening to music and others fully equipped with heart rate monitors, water bottle and all that stuff Pro racers need.
But it’s funny: in the middle of this metropolis there is suddenly a quiet and green place – just like that. We definitely enjoyed it!
