Christo and Jeanne-Claude's "The Gates" surrounding the skating rink
Picture time! For sixteen days this installation was the most photographed site in New York
Even the dogs got dressed up in saffron
Statue of Shakespeare. Notice the lady on the right reciting a soliloquy
The crowds were huge on Sunday, everyone wanted to parade under "The Gates"
But there were also relatively empty stretches of the park
These gates pass by the Delacorte Theater
My favorite picture of "The Gates:" In the snow, as Christo and Jeanne-Claude imagined them
Winter time in Central Park
The Central Park Carousel is always a popular spot
And when the winds blew, "The Gates" came to life
People of all ages came to visit this installation
"The Gates" snake through the park on a wintry, foggy New York afternoon
Near the corner of Central Park West and 72nd Street, with The Dakota in the background
Just to prove I was there
The serenity of "The Gates" makes my friend Grant want to practice his karate
