The Plaza Hotel, surrounded by the fog-shrouded skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan, towers over the Gates on a rainy evening.
Added to Cream of the Crop as my most viewed and most favorited picture.
Chosen by flickr as the # 1 most interesting photo on March 10, 2005.
One week after The Gates had officially closed, only about half had been taken down. This shot is from March 7.
This picture was published in Time Out New York magazine (the March 31-April 6, 2005 issue, p. 10, in a blurb on the Gates Memory project): Time Out New York article
This photo depicts the Gapstow Bridge and the Pond on a foggy day. Mirrored in the rippling waters of the Pond, the arch of the bridge forms a near-perfect oval.
And here is how this same bridge looks in the spring, with lush foliage on the trees (and, of course, sans Gates): Gapstow Bridge in springtime

It was tuesday afternoon, NY time. I snuck out of the conference to take some pictures of the Gates, while admiring the overnight snow fall.
This is one of my favorite shots. The wind picked up for a second and the sun was very strong that day. Make for a very intense shot. Pretty good considering I had about a second to frame this before someone bumped into me (again!).
This image was taken the day before the official unfurling of "The Gates" in Central Park.
This was taken on the cold Feb. 18th, 2005. The wind was strong and it created all kinds of shapes for each gate.
The Gates, reflected in a puddle on the bridle path. I was surprised by how purple the mud came out in the photo.
So I got up early this morning to go shoot before work; unfortunately the light wasn't too good; but the snow brought a whole different dimension to the gates; I can't help but imagine that this is how Christo really intended his work to be seen

February 26th, early afternoon,
I couldn't tell where the gates ended and the city started
