The Bethesda Terrace and Fountain in Central Park

I’m really glad that this is turning into one of those months where I get to mark a lot of things off my bucket list! I’ve been meaning to visit this location for years, ever since I saw a person get killed there in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. If I remember right, the person was dumped into the fountain and left floating.

We got to the Terrace by walking up the Mall.

The Bethesda Terrace and Fountain are awesome places to hang out. There were a ton of tourists there.

Just beyond, on The Lake (yes, that’s it’s name and it’s capitalized on the map), people were boating.

A little ways down the road towards the west, the slope leading down to the lake was covered by people soaking up the sun.

And bordering on The Lake at Wagner Cove, the NYPD Mounted Patrol was preparing to go on patrol:
