Description

Exterior. In this color photo of Central Park, the paved pathway is at center and leads into the far distance to the right. Green benches and street lights line either side of the path, and some women sit on the benches. One pair of women on the left have a baby carriage with them. Flanking either side of the path are large statues. Large American Elms arch over the path, creating a dense canopy of leaves.
