Before we moved to the Big Apple I always imagined myself walking through Central Park. It is my favorite “escape” of the concrete jungle without leaving the city. You can find so many hidden and secret places and enjoy quiet moments just for yourself. Besides the many different lakes and movie scenery locations there is so much more to explore, one of my current favorite locations is Shakespeare Garden. A rather less-frequented attraction of the park and one of the perfect places for a relaxing afternoon. Stroll along its winding paths amidst the lovely seasonal flora, which is particularly vibrant and lush in the springtime with a romantic atmosphere and covers four acres of plants that change according to season.
