Central Park Snow (1)

Since it is July, and the Big Apple is in the midst of a blistering heatwave, I thought it’d be cool (bad, xiao su, bad) to post some photographs that I took in Central Park during a snowy winter. I think this was the winter of 1990/1991… the last winter I lived in NYC. Neither here or there, but at the time I shot these photos, I was renting a very small room in an apartment on 90th and Lex.

All of these were taken on black and white film. I had the negatives scanned-in during 2008 (extremely cheap to do in Beijing when compared to doing so in the US of A).

The photos are all recently edited using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.

btw, I don’t know the names of some of the statutes. Pointers would be appreciated.

UPDATE: Erika and El Viejo pointed-out that this was the “Angel of the Waters”, and supplied these great links:

  1. Rob — This is probably “Angel of the Waters” in Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. I left the URL for the Wikipedia page on your FaceBook account. Nice photo! 90 and Lexington, eh? I lived at 100th and Broadway in 1967.

    1. I think so as well. Thanks. Take a look at the link Erika provided above. I think that link and your paint a great story. Totally different city between 1967 and when I lived there (1986-1191). 🙂 I had multiple residencies during my stay, but the small room at 90th and Lex was my final one before returning to the US of A.

    1. I had replaced the photo. Instead of using the same identifier, flickr assigned a new one. You can see the photo on my blog. Sorry about that.
