I stopped by Paley Park after visiting the Museum of Modern Art a couple of weeks ago. This is one of my favorite places in Manhattan. Probably one of the most tranquil places in Manhattan too, especially when it’s empty in early evening.
It’s on 53rd Street, between Madison Avenue and 5th.
The sounds of the falling water completely eliminate all street noise.
Stretching upward for light, the Honey locusts (Gleditsia triacanthos) have become sculpture.
The park was built in 1967.
