Around the Reservoir: A Photoessay

Posted on November 8, 2011

Yesterday I took a walk along the jogging track that encircles Manhattan’s Central Park Reservoir (more properly, I guess, the “Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir”).





On the reservoir side of the jogging track, beyond the black cast-iron ornamental fence, is a steep embankment leading down into the water. In this micro-enviroment, just a few feet wide but 1.6 miles long, fall is in full swing…

More photos are here.

  1. Love your autumn images. As for the Reservoir, I’ll never start calling the Jackie O Reservoir. It’s just “the Reservoir.”


  2. Wow, Vladimir, these photos are gorgeous. I shall make a point of walking the reservoir this weekend. That chubby little bird peeking through the yellow leaves is cuteness personified. :)


  3. Thanks for the inspiration, Vladimir, the light was completely different when I was there today, your colours are so vivid, mine seem much more muted. It was a lovely walk. xx
