MyModernMet is one of my favorite inspiration sites and this collection comes from the same source. I have never been to NY but always seen Central Park show up in TV shows, I still remember I first heard the mention of Central Park in Catcher in the Rye. Apparently it was the first public park in the history of the United States. The lakes, streams, ponds are all man made except an exposed bedrock called Manhatten Schist, which is 450 million years old!
Head over to MyModernMet to view the rest of these 20 images they have compiled from all over the web.
