I went to Central Park New York on 27 January 3015 after winter storm Juno was hit this city on 26 January 2015. Central Park was covered by snow. All are white. I was blessed to play with snow. Made snowman and taking pictures. Central Park turned to be snow wonderland. It is very nice. It is great to visit... More

Gorgeous and peaceful in a massive city like New York. Even when it is cold and covered in snow it is a beautiful walk.

I really liked the idea of a cozy park in the centre of the busy city. This quiet and tranquil place is excellent for respite and chill, temporarily away from the bustling NYC. I had a short stroll and I love just looking at trees, the pond and breathing in fresh air.
