Tortoise Strolls

“The Lane” 35 Central Park South

leave a comment »

“The Lane” is a gated, yet at rare times, open passageway leading one from Central Park South onto 58th Street. It semi-resembles a Parisian Shopping Arcade, yet unlike for example the Vero-Dodat in Paris’ 1st arrondissement, “The Lane” does not have any shops, just a few windows with a jewelry display, minus the jewels at that. It is perhaps a poor example of an arcade, but the best New York example, probably the only one the city has.

“The Lane” is part of the Hemsley Park Lane Hotel. It has a courtyard in the middle, with an open sky, and views of magnificently lit buildings on 58th Street.  On a recent stroll after a visit to the Museum of Arts and Design on Columbus Circle, I made my way across Central Park South and noticed the gate to “The Lane” was left open. Being a very curious and one might even say, nosy New Yorker, I went on in and snapped a few photos just as the day was coming to a close.
