Jenny-

Very nice video---it's amazing the amount of wildlife to be found in NYC, just shows how resourceful living creatures are.

Central Park is like an island paradise in the middle of the city. I am sure if I lived in New York I would spend a lot of time there.

Beautifully done, Jenny!

I keep wondering what Manhatten looked like 1,000 years ago.

I agree. They are very enjoyable to watch. I like the mix of still shots and video. The choice of music is just perfect.

Nice Piece. I'm jealous. We've yet to get a nice fat flaked wet snow in columbus that will stick to all the trees and pretty up the winter gloom.

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement everyone. I dream of the day when one of you ENTS comes to NYC and I can drag you through my many walks. I would learn so much more. Especially since they are 'renovating' the northern part of the park where a violent storm ripped hundreds of trees out of the ground in 2009. Interesting to see what they are going to plant and how they foresee it growing. I know they are strengthening the soil first in many places. A good start.

More snow tomorrow.....yay!

Thanks again, Jenny

Jennifer,

I am glad you decided to post this video here. Your videos are truly artistic.
