Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


I recently visited New York City and Alisa’s Travel Theme: Parks came just in time for me to share more of the photos I took while there.


Below are a few of the many photos I took of Central Park, “the world’s most famous park and the first landscaped public park in the United States.”





( If you have time after checking out of the hotel and before your plane or bus leaves

for home, why not camp out and relax in the park. )

  14. It’s a wonderful park, Francine. So much going on there all the time.

  15. I used to live so close to Central Park in the early 1980s. It was so open then. On a recent trip I was distressed to see how much of the park is fenced off! All the fencing made me feel like I was being corralled, like a farm animal. I’m not claustrophobic, or anything, but it bothered me very much. I know there are designated areas where you’re free to actually feel the earth and walk on the grass, but all the fencing is very limiting and controlling. And, it spoils a lot of the park’s beauty. They need to free up the park, so it’s once again the people’s park . . . and not just a tourist attraction.
