It may look like we’re just jumping on a regular lawn surrounded by beautiful fall trees, but nothing could be more wrong my friend. Right behind us, you will notice a large group of people. We were jumping (quietly of course) at Strawberry Fields, a designated Quiet Zone of the park visited by people from all over the world to observe the living memorial of John Lennon. This peaceful section of the park was named after one of The Beatles’ most famous songs, “Strawberry Fields Forever”.
After our sweet jumps at Strawberry Fields, we went one of my favorite central park locations (technically, the locations I chose for the Jump File all all favorites), Bethesda Fountain. The gigantic fountain is beautiful day and night throughout the entire year. I’ve witnessed many performances, photoshots, and wedding pictures taken at this location. According toThe Official Website of Central Park, ”the fountain commemorates the Croton water system, which first brought fresh water to New York City in 1842. The angel carries a lily in her left hand – a symbol of the water’s purity, very important to a city that had previously suffered from a devastating cholera epidemic before the system was established.” Isn’t that amazing?! We also invited some street dancers who go by the AfroBats to jump with us.
Stay tuned for more sweet jumps!
