The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.
It is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French, and English. The Garden's main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets.
The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.
A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.
On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.
spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips, all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.
In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.
To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.
There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays.
A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.
At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.
The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool.
The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.
For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.

Just the same, there are brothers out there who hate to come home from work to a "nagging wife." Everyone wants to feel appreciated for who they are and what they do. We want to hear your ideas on how to show it

Back in the day, it was common practice for men to open doors for ladies, let them out of cars, and even hold their hand when going up stairs. There are so many customary practices regarding chivalry that seem to be dead and or dying today. Is it just the way this generation does things? It seems that there are very few men who still practice these customs today. We want to know from you: Is chivalry dead? What can we do to bring it back to life or is it a lost cause? Dr. & Lady Newells are ready to discuss this with you tonight!
Any married couple knows that staying together gets hard. Especially when differences come into play and get out of hand. Not everyone knows how to "agree to disagree." We harbor feelings that should have been let go. Sometimes adultery has been committed and keeps coming up every time an argument ensues. Has it really gotten so bad that divorce is inevitable? Is divorce acceptable? If so, at what point. In this episode, Dr. & Lady Newells outline the biblical and practical answers to these questions!

we are live from the 805 Third Avenue (49th and 50th Street) - The Crystal Pavilion
www.untappedcities.com says: This tri-leveled lunch hotspot is best accessed at the street level via a wide, right-angled circulation corridor, which also connects the Third Avenue and East 50th Street entrances. The concourse level, reached by escalator near the Third Avenue entrance has the most amount of tables and services, and is the spot where during mid-day, when the sun comes bursting through the windows, one can look up and literally be dazzled by the space’s volume and design.

We are living in the age of technology. Everywhere we look, whether in restaurants, lines, coffee shops... Everyone seems to be scrolling through their phones or tablets. Even couples out to dinner would both be on their phones and no conversation is going on. Do you feel technology is ruining your relationships?
