A peek at the lake during an afternoon walk yesterday. It was my first time strolling over and I was surprised by the natural beauty.

We walked over to the swimming pool too, but the line up when we arrived made us lose interest in that quickly.

Living in New York City is very easy to overlook all the natural beauty in front of us. So many people are so busy on their work life, and forget about the purpose of why we are living.

How right you are...
I moved here from Fort Tryon/Inwood Hill Park area and I thought the parks and Cloisters were the best things about that neighbourhood.

One thing most people forget about. The nature doesn't need humans. Humans need nature. Keep going down the road of ruin the planet earth, we will no longer be able to see these beautiful scene on a picture.

Absolutely. People are careless. We need to do better.

Oxygen isn't next. It's water that wars will be fought over within our lifetimes.

well next is heat, followed by water. Already heat is causing issues in India / Africa where it's getting to 123 degrees now. They say within a few years many places around the middle east & south asia will be completely inhabitable.

Water wars will break out for sure, but the good news for us is the US & Canada hold the 3rd & 4th largest fresh water reserves in the world. We will never go dry and good luck to any country who tries to attack (and besides how could they possibly take the water away). Many other countries though will face mass dehydration and civil wars.

But if deforestation & population growth continues, the day will come when there's not enough oxygen to get through the day without lying in bed. Hopefully not in my kids' lifetime

I discovered this lake by accident sometime ago when I was by chance in the area. It is nice.
