garden from the end of You've Got Mail. Probably 60% of the things I seek out in the city are from movies or tv shows. I'm that girl. Anyway, the apartment is closer to Central Park, but Riverside is only a few (long) blocks away, and I think it's rapidly becoming one of my very favorite places in the city.
the Mall in Central Park, minus basically all of the people and hot dog vendors (they aren't missed, trust me). I've only explored the lower half of the park so far, but I intend to take a weekend and walk the entire thing.
PS: I posted a little video of my walk in the park yesterday on Vine if you're into that.
