MARATHON SUNDAY in Central Park

For New Yorkers……it was “business as usual”………..no MARATHON meant ………back to a bit of normalcy for a few hours.

Bow Bridge and the San Remo towers……..both enjoyed the calm after the storm.

Rollerbladers at the Bandshell……..doing their tricks for the tourists.

 

  “Oh my aching back”……….but the Abada Caporeira kids were having a great time.

  And her shoes match his shirt………..

 Plastic flowers for a Bridal Bouquet………..why not !

Amour……..

They were quite entertaining……….with a hip sound and fine voices.

What is with those “drop drawer” pants?  Actually ……..a hot new fashion trend in New York.

 

Newlyweds in the passage at Bethesda Fountain.

I have no idea what or who he is supposed to be.

Oh so pretty.

 

Oh………..not so pretty !

Balloons on their way to a party in the park.

oh so cute

 

Our geese LOVE muffins……from Pain Quotidien.

Weather was cool……….but picnics rule.

250 trees were uprooted by Sandy.  The city Parks Department worked all week to chop and clear.  Sad to lose so many in just one storm.

 

 Carts for Marathon Officials………still and silent……never used.

From my terrace I could look down to the lake……..and the boaters.

Central Park …………so serene………..unaware that the big “Noreaster” storm is on it’s way on Wednesday.
