Central Park, Conservatory Garden, Fifth Avenue at 105th Street

And now, our destination, the Conservatory Garden in Central Park. This is at the entrance. Already I am calmed.

The garden is in three sections; this is the Central Garden which is Italian in style. I gather it is spectacularly beautiful in the spring with crabapple trees around the perimeter and wisteria on the pergola at the back. If you are planning to get married, say, next spring, you might give a thought to a wedding on the pergola.

The North Garden is classic French in style and the South Garden is English. More on these tomorrow.

And this is on the other side, looking back at Fifth Avenue. The building dead center and continuing to the right is El Museo del Bario. If you have really good eyes and squint really hard, you might be able to see signs of the renovation.

See map.
