I think this shot was taken looking towards Central Park West, the twin buildings being bteween 62 and 63rd Street. If so it would be from somewhere near Center Drive.

Can anyone find a recent photo?

I went through my meager collection and could find nothing. I even did a lap of the park using Google street view without any success. Sorry, but I bet someone comes up!

Hi Jethro

I looked at a list of the playgrounds in Central Park, but they did not show one in the position I think the photo was taken.

I think that there is a granite rock in the photo background, and if so it could be where now there a circles at the SW end of the Park.

Regards, Peter

I agree. I have a photo of a boulder that looks just like that one in Central Park, but I bet there is more than one that does.

Oh well. Maybe if I make the trip again......
