The Bandshell, Central Park

Photo by myself of the bandshell in Central Park.

The shadow cast by the half dome reveals that the concrete surface is curved and coffered.

If you're planning to visit New York soon, it's perfect timing. Not only is the weather wonderful, but the New York Times featured The City in its travel section.

One article makes some economical suggestions to those on a budget. The attempt to stick to a $500 budget for two people over a weekend proved very difficult. The hotel stay ate up most of the money, while galleries and parks provided free sources of entertainment.

The second article lists other suggestions of what to do while here.

At least we can be sure that the city parks will always be free.

c'est un endroit ou il est agréable de venir écouter des concerts au printemps.

Kitty,

I learned about a Chanel exhibition in the Central Park. I wondered if you felt like going there and writing an entry about it?

I really enjoyed the frugal travel article Kitty, thanks for the link.
I'll be back later to read the second.
I'm so glad you are an architect. It's nice to know the proper names for things!
