My Walk Through Central Park

01Photo by (c)Marc Myers
Early Tuesday morning, I had an appointment on the East Side of Manhattan so I cabbed it. Afterward, I decided to walk home to the West Side through Central Park. I took photos along the way for all of my JazzWax readers worldwide who are homesick for New York, lived here once and miss it, or visited the city and still love it.
