Rest Stop

Just east of the stone steps leading down to Bethesda Terrace in
Central Park, there is a little noticed footpath meandering north
through the trees and shrubs. The footpath leads to a wooden bench,
which sits on the crest of a knoll hidden among the trees. Although
hundreds of park visitors can be observed around Bethesda Fountain
and on the walkway along the lake, few ever venture up the lesser-
traveled path to discover the waiting bench.

What they miss is a secret resting place to hear the melody of the
birds, see the squirrels scamper about, and smell the fresh scent of
pine in the midst of New York City.
