An Arcadian Amble

While walking in Central Park, my friends and I came upon the Bethesda Terrace underpass, which was built in the 1860s. It’s a bit di Chirico-esque, no? Especially on a cold winter’s day when hardly anyone else is around.ImageFive musicians were singing “You Raise Me Up.” The man in the center had a deep, rich voice that echoed across the Minton tiles. According to Central Park’s web site, these types of tiles usually cover European cathedral floors. This arcade is the only place where they make up the ceiling.ImageJust up the ways from that magical scene, we saw a man making serious bubbles.ImageSo that’s Central Park on a crisp January day: whimsical, musical, cold, and all yours to play in.

    • I’m from this area, and I’m certain there are parts of Central Park that I’ve never seen. It’s enormous! For the next time you come, the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace is in the southeast part of the park.
