Scenes from a green Fourth of July

One of the day's highlights was walking by the lake in Central Park and through the Ramble, which is my favorite part of the park.

Will you ever bring a better gift for the world
than the breathing respect that you carry
wherever you go right now?

What a beautiful place. Thanks for this. I needed a short, but lovely respite. You've given me that. I'm very grateful.

Great photos! You sure showed how serene the place is. I specially like the first one. We need more places like this in the city. :)

Thank you! This has become a favorite place of mine to walk; I think all cities need green spaces like these.
