A great place to walk

We spent 6 days in total during our stay on American soil, and it took us 5 days to finally set foot in Central Park! I planned this visit quite late in our itinerary, as there was so much else I wanted to see, and in the end it proved to be a lucky decision, as the last two days of our stay were the sunniest! After entering through the North Entrance, we could see many, many pools, and many dog ​​walkers, with 5 to 10 dogs each, awesome! It was a great place to go for a walk.

Central park magic

Central Park is special for many reasons. First, it is a massive, beautiful park that is in the middle of one of the most iconic cities in the world. But when you step into the park, you forget the fact that you are surrounded by skyscrapers and it is just you and nature. There are people strolling hand in hand, kids playing, people having games of chess, musicians jamming, sidewalk art, carriage rides, pedi cabs, joggers, a zoo...anything you can think of! It's a magical place that everyone should visit at least once!

The reading tree

I lived in Manhattan for a year and during the times it wasn't snowing or freezing outside I would go read under the same tree everyday. This is the view of the green beauty I saw all summer.

Central park

Before I went to NYC, I had read in the traveler's guide of "Lonely Planet", as Central Park was a bit of "breathing space" for New Yorkers. The month that I can say is that traveler's guide was right. Indeed, in a city where there is an incredible buzz, this huge park in the heart of Manhattan is an amazing and amazingly quiet. . Tired by visits throughout the day? Go to Central Park, where a nap is a must! I promise no one will wake you up! If you have time, take the time to come to Central Park on Sunday afternoon and look for the huge meadow where many New Yorkers come to relax with family, lovers or friends. The program? Picnic, Frisbee, American Football, Soccer etc ... Come on, like I'm a nice blogger, I give you a little hint: this meadow, about many photographic plates are located near the Upper West Side. But I did not tell you ... :)

Central park

Avant mon départ pour NYC, j'avais lu dans le guide du voyageur de "Lonely Planet", que Central Park était un peu la "bouffée d'oxygène" des New Yorkais. Le mois que je puisse dire, c'est que ce guide du voyageur disait vrai. En effet, dans une ville où il existe une incroyable effervescence, cet immense parc situé au coeur de Manhattan est d'une tranquillité étonnante et déconcertante.
Fatigué par les visites effectuées tout au long de la journée ? Go to Central Park, où une petite sieste s'impose ! Promis, personne ne viendra vous réveiller ! Si vous en avez l'occasion, prenez le temps de venir à Central Park le dimanche après-midi et cherchez l'immense prairie où de nombreux New Yorkais viennent se relaxer en famille, en amoureux ou entre amis. Au programme ? Pique-nique, Frisbee, Football Américain, Soccer etc... Allez, comme je suis un gentil blogueur, je vous donne un petit indice: cette prairie, sujet de nombreux clichés photographiques se situe tout près d'Upper West Side. Mais je ne vous ai rien dit ... :)

The green heart of new york

Those who have been lucky enough to fly over Manhattan, we saw how the city looks over a green mantle overturn (white in winter), which looks like an open wound to around the most spectacular and historic buildings in the Big Apple. Cheerful and colorful during the summer, mysterious and amazing during the winter, but always bustling and lively, Central Park has become over the years in a box that opens every step to give us the most varied and amazing surprises . Perhaps the best of them, the most enjoyable, is the tranquility and peace that you can breathe in leaving behind the fast paced march that seems to invade the great avenues of the city. The traffic, the rush, the noise of the city that never sleeps to go out beyond the limits entering this single lung in the world, who has already served no less than 157 years with figures showing their vital importance to the NYC. Four miles long by 800 meters wide where 26,000 live large trees, 275 species of birds, thousands of fun and nothing scary squirrels, 9,000 banks, 93 kilometers of roads and trails, 30 bridges, seven lakes, several restaurants, fountains , sculptures and of course the Metropolitan, one of the best museums in the world. All these data, over 25 million visitors annually transcend its boundaries, its consideration as a cradle of world jogging (especially in the area of ​​The Reservoir, the lake that was dug to supply fresh water to the city), the wonderful Belvedere Castle and the Botanical Garden, the sculpture of Alice, the small zoo for children or the spectacular and cinephile Bethesda Terrace, Central Park make a unique place well worth a full day to soak up the essence of the city of new York.

El corazón verde de nueva york

Quienes hemos tenido la suerte de sobrevolar Manhattan, hemos visto cómo la ciudad parece volcarse sobre un manto verde ( blanco en invierno), que parece una herida abierta a la que rodean los más espectaculares e históricos edificios de la Gran Manzana.
Alegre y colorido durante el verano, misterioso y sorprendente durante el invierno, pero siempre bullicioso y lleno de vida, Central Park se ha convertido con el paso de los años en una caja que se abre a cada paso para regalarnos las más variadas e increíbles sorpresas.
Quizá la mejor de ellas, la que más se disfruta, sea el sosiego y la paz que se puede respirar al dejar atrás la trepidante marcha que parece invadir las grandes avenidas de la ciudad. El tráfico, las prisas, los ruidos de la urbe que nunca duerme, se apagan al traspasar los límites que entran a este pulmón único en el mundo, que ya ha cumplido nada menos que 157 años con unas cifras que demuestran su importancia vital para la ciudad de Nueva York.
Cuatro kilómetros de largo por 800 metros de ancho donde conviven 26.000 árboles de gran tamaño, 275 especies de pájaros, miles de divertidas y nada asustadizas ardillas, 9.000 bancos, 93 kilómetros de calles y senderos, 30 puentes, siete lagos, varios restaurantes, fuentes, esculturas y por supuesto el Metropolitan, uno de los mejores museos del mundo.
Todos esos datos, más los 25 millones de visitantes que anualmente traspasan sus lindes, su consideración como cuna del footing mundial ( sobre todo en la zona de The Reservoir, el gran lago que se excavó para suministrar de agua dulce a la ciudad), el maravilloso castillo de Belvedere o el Jardín Botánico, la escultura de Alicia, el pequeño zoo para niños o la espectacular y cinéfila Bethesda Terrace, hacen de Central Park un lugar único que bien merece una jornada completa para empaparse de toda la esencia de la ciudad de Nueva York.

That paradise

We'll start with the typical and topical phrase that is the lung of the city, but that is a huge garden, impossible to walk around. I think there are over 90 miles of trails. On one side of it is the Museum Mile and the other as the most remarkable buildings Dakota (where Lennon was murdered has a mosaic in the park as a tribute to former Beatle and is always crowded. Believe that the Strawberry Fields area is called) and the Natural History Museum, which I highly recommend visiting. Weekends are prohibited motorized traffic and filled with people running or riding a bike. I've never seen so many people give you stick to sports sweating!. Not to mention those who practice softball (baseball variety of women and men talluditos), skating or just walking. You can also take carriage rides, a merry ride is inside the park, visit the zoo, buy a hot dog or popcorn, see statues of Hans Christian Andersen or Alice in Wonderland or simply tumbaros in grass (best done in summer than in winter), close your eyes and forget that only a few minutes of that paradise exists a city on the move and has not slept in 24 hours

Ese paraíso

Empezaremos con la frase típica y tópica de que es el pulmón de la ciudad, pero es que es un jardín enorme, imposible de recorrer andando. Creo que hay más de 90 kilómetros de senderos. A un lado del mismo está la milla de los museos y en el otro, como edificios más destacables el Dakota (donde asesinaron a Lenon que tiene un mosaico en el parque como homenaje al ex-Beatle y siempre está lleno de gente. Creo que la zona se llama Strawberry Fields) y el Museo de Historia Natural, que os recomiendo vivamente visitar.
Los fines de semana está prohibido el tráfico con motor y se llena de gente corriendo o andando en bici. ¡Nunca había visto tanta gente dale que te pego al deporte sudando la gota gorda!. Eso sin contar con quienes practican el sofball (variedad de béisbol para mujeres y hombres talluditos), patinan o, simplemente, pasean.
Además puedes dar paseos en calesa, montar en un Tío Vivo que hay dentro del parque, visitar el zoo, comprar un perrito caliente o unas palomitas, ver estatuas dedicadas a Hans Christian Andersen o Alicia en el País de las Maravillas o sencillamente tumbaros en la hierba (mejor hacer esto en verano que en invierno), cerrar los ojos y olvidaros que a sólo unos minutos de ese paraíso existe una ciudad en constante movimiento y que no duerme en las 24 horas del día

Do not miss it ....

Central Park, Manhattan Island is a perfect rectangle covering 341 hectares, with a huge lung of the Big Apple. It measures 4,000 meters long by 800 meters wide. It is twice as large as the Principality of Monaco and nearly eight times bigger than the Vatican. Its 341 acres of green in it convieten GREEN MANHATTAN vaster. It is the first time I visited in Spring, as at other times I saw him fall and winter, therefore, the fact of being housed just three blocks from him, gave us the opportunity to walk it many times. The first time was during the first day of our arrival, that after leaving the bags and go around the neighborhood to look for supplies and drinks, we went to "stretch their legs" after the plane ride, and found as Always wonderful, totally green, with many species of trees, flowering shrubs and many birds and butterflies. Not too busy, it was Saturday afternoon, so we walked quietly enjoying the calm, noting the number of banks which are signs, reminders of couples who used to sit around, people pasiando their dogs, drinking water for the dog owner and for the dog below .... Several animal sculptures that hover between the fronds, groups of people sitting on the grass, resting under a tree, as the heat was oppressive ..... Also from time to bridges, fountains, obelistos mixed in some clear, through the trees, and above all a wonderful green, in contrast, when you lift the look, with variegated towers, typical of Manhattan. Of course not went all in this first foray .... Since it is so big and has so many things to know, like a zoo, lakes, ice skating rink and skate in winter common in spring and fall, etc.. It is an excellent place to "cut" between museum and museum, shopping, entertainment .... Do not miss it ....

El CENTRAL PARK de la Isla de Manhattan es un rectángulo perfecto que abarca 341 Hectareas de extensión, siendo un inmenso pulmón de la GRAN MANZANA.
Sus medidas son 4.000 metros de largo por 800 metros de ancho. Es dos veces más grande que el Principado de Mónaco y casi ocho veces más grande que el Estado del Vaticano.
Sus 341 Hectáreas de verde lo convieten en el ESPACIO VERDE mas VASTO de MANHATTAN.
Es la primera vez que lo visito en Primavera, pues en otras ocasiones lo vi en Otoño e Invierno, por lo cual, el hecho de estar alojada a sólo tres cuadras de él, nos dió la oportunidad de caminarlo muchas veces.
Esta primera vez, fue durante el primer día de nuestra llegada, en que luego de dejar las valijas y salir a recorrer el vecindario para buscar provisiones y bebidas, nos fuimos a "estirar las piernas" luego del viaje en avión, y lo encontramos como siempre MARAVILLOSO, totalmente verde, con tantas especies de árboles , arbustos florecidos y cantidad de pájaros y mariposas.
No había demasiada gente, pues era sábado por la tarde, por lo que caminamos tranquilamente disfrutando de la calma reinante, observando la cantidad de bancos en los que se ven letreros, recordatorios de las parejas que solían sentarse por allí , gente pasiando sus perros, bebederos de agua para el dueño del perro y debajo para el perrito.... Esculturas de animales varios que asoman entre la fronda, grupos de personas sentadas en el pasto, descansando bajo un árbol, ya que el calor apretaba.....
También puentecitos de tanto en tanto, fuentes, obelistos mezclados en algún claro , entre los árboles, y sobre todo un VERDE MARAVILLOSO, que contrasta, cuando levantas la mirada, con las torres abigarradas, típicas de Manhattan.
Por supuesto que no lo recorrimos todo en esta primera incursión.... Ya que es tan grande y tiene tantas cosas por conocer, como un Zoológico, lagos y lagunas, pista para patinaje sobre hielo en invierno y patín común en primavera y otoño, etc.
Es un excelente lugar para hacer "un corte" entre museo y museo, compras, espectáculos....
No te lo pierdas....

Spectacular views

We started by visiting the park's west front of the building South Dakota, where he lived and was murdered John Lennon on December 8, 1980. There's a memorial, Strawberry Fields, a garden dedicated to his memory which was funded by Yoko Ono. Then we went downtown to Central Park: Bethesda Fountain with sculpture Angel of Water. This source refers to the passage of the angel who gave the curative waters of the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem.

The walk continued towards the Belvedere Castle, a stone castle that houses a meteorological observatory. Note that by the way we lost a bit, however we saw the oldest sculpture park: Cleopatra's Needles, a large obelisk XV century BC It is located just behind the Metropolitan. Already in Belvedere Castle enjoyed a spectacular view of the Great Lawn. In Central Park, in the Conservatory Water is a statue in bronze, very popular: The Alice in Wonderland. It was made by the Spanish sculptor Jose de Creeft and sees Alicia sitting on a giant mushroom during a tea party with the White Rabbit and the Mad Hatter.

A continuación nos fuimos al centro de Central Park: La fuente de Bethesda con la escultura del ángel de Aguas. Esta fuente hace referencia al pasaje bíblico del ángel que concedió propiedades curativas a las aguas del estanque de Bethesda en Jerusalem.
