As promised, here are some more photos from the New York trip thus far. To start things off, we go to Central Park.

This is definitely an endlessly interesting place where every niche is filled. But I prefer a softer version of city life. So despite New York’s famed frenetic hum, I managed to seek out and find some semblance of serenity too.
