Central Park Reflection

The weather while I was in New York was amazingly warm.  I took a walk around Central Park and decided to walk around Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.  The reservoir, which is also known as the Central Park Reservoir used to provide the city of New York with water, but was decommissioned in 1993.  In 1994 the reservoir was named after Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis for her contributions to the city and because she loved the jogging area which was just below her 5th Avenue apartment.

The evening I walked around the 1.5 mile running track I was expecting a cool breeze to come up off the water, but I was pleasantly surprised by warm air coming off the water.  I stopped at the Northeast side of the reservoir and captured this image across the water of the Manhattan Skyline.
