Central parc is one of the obligatory visits if you go to New York. It is a wonderful parc with some lakes and open spaces for walking, running or just breath.

Walking through Central Park is a wonderful experience for anyone visiting NYC. The miles of paved trails is a welcomed relief from the hustle and bustle of NYC>

I've been to NYC many times and usually stay near Bryant Park, but during the holidays, thought a walk through Central Park was a must. It was busy, but not overly crowded, as it's large. We took a long walk and it was fairly uneventful, but we stumbled upon a few of the most popular spots, including Strawberry Fields and... More

If you want an escape from the hustle and bustle, this is the answer! Whether you want to skate on the rink over the winter months or relax with a bite to eat from a nearby deli. Plenty to see and do see, and you don't realise the size of the park until you're in it, could easily spend a... More

It depends how you look at it. I t's just a park like many of them. Have to be visited. Or it is a place of immense natural beauty. Or it is a place many movies were filmed at. You will definitely recall many famous movie scenes. Scenery is ideal to make beautiful and unforgettable photos, memories...

Great place to chill after the frenzy of 5th Avenue! Beautiful in fall when we visited. We walked from the southern end to close the the end of the northern end on a cold, windy, sunny day and loved it.

Carriage Ride in the park with my sweetheart. Carriage was great, driver was ideal, friendly and knowledgeable of the park sights. Just enough guiding, not too much as to ruin the peaceful time with my girl.
