day 7 ny
I really had a fantastic day today. It started at the Cloisters, which is a museum built on top of a hill. The museum itself looks like a European monistary and it is full of medival art. Most of the art came from France, Germany and the Netherlands, and mostly from the period 1000-1500. The Cloisters also had a terrific garden, as you can see on one of my photo's.
After having left the Cloisters, we went to get lunch. After that we went to the subway and headed for central park. we entered the park at the north-west corner, where we went straight into the Woods. there were a lot of birds in these Woods, it turns out that central park is one of the most important bird breeding places in the United States, even though the park is located in one of its biggest cities!
we then went to see the Harlem Meer, a small but beautiful lake with gorgious nature around it and a lot of animals living in there. Afterwards we continued our way towards the Resevoir, the park's biggest lake. But on our way there we came across some baseball fields, where high school teams where competing against eachother. So we stayed there for a while and watched part of a game. Later we got to the Resevoir, which was really nice. I was told that the apartment buildings where really expensive because of the park view, and that people like U2's Bono have an apartement over there.
what I liked most about central park was the fact that even though you are in one of the biggest cities on the planet, you can still feel like you are in the peaceful Woods over there. If I where to live in New York one day, I'd probably go here as often as I could.
I had a lot of trouble uploading pictures the past coulple of days, but I hope it worked this time.
