The Pond, Central Park, Manhattan, New York


This photo was taken from The Pond, located at the south east corner of Central Park (Manhattan, New York), near the entrance at Grand Army Plaza.When Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux designed Central Park, they imagined an immediate reprieve from the city’s streets. The Pond became a serene escape, just feet from Fifth Avenue.
The two modern towers (750 ft - 229 m) at the background are from the Time Warner Center (construction began in November 2000, following the demolition of the New York Coliseum), and a topping-out ceremony was held on February 27, 2003).
