Without a doubt, one of the best things about New York City is its Central Park. Designed by landscape designer and writer Frederick Law Olmsted and the English architect Calvert Vaux in 1858, it is the most visited urban park in the United States and an official National Historic Landmark since 1963. The park stretches 2.5 miles long and 0.5 miles wide and is contained on all four sides by the concrete urban sprawl of Manhattan, making it literally a huge oasis right in the midst of one of the biggest metropolises in the world. Understandably, Central Park is iconic, beloved and photographed by many. Personally I crave to photograph it during every season, but for now I have to satisfy myself with this summer time image collection.
