Okay view I guess

It's a rock that you can go up, it looks alright from up there. Not really sure why this is an attraction on trip advisor, oh well.

Rat Rock also known as Umpire Rock is a blackish boulder that protrudes from the Central Park bedrock. It is named after the rats that used to swarm there at night and is situated near the southwest corner of the park. Climbing the rock used to be an offence but not anymore.
