2014 Travel - The New York Edit: Central Park

On Sunday I decided to take on Central Park, and all the sights I wanted to see. The park was the first major landscaped park in America, and designed as a calm for the city after unrest such as thousands of immigrants, cholera and poor environmental health conditions in the city. It is now a place where people flock - to watch free theatre, to exercise, to sit in tranquil areas and to just enjoy the great outdoors.

I was most looking forward to the Imagine tribute, as I love the Beatles. Sadly, it wasn't the tranquil spot it promised, as there were thousands of tourists all wanted to pose doing the peace sign on the memorial. The Alice in Wonderland statue however, as wonderful. I have a special bond with Alice, as Lewis Caroll lived and died in my home town of Guildford, Surrey. I have grown up with her, and it was nice to meet her again.
