Central Park

We used a bicycle guide off the street who we were able to negotiate a set rate. He was very informative and stopped at many of the sights. Beautiful afternoon

Central Park has got to be the most incredible park I've ever seen. It is bigger than you could possibly imagine, more beautiful than you could ever dream and it feels as if you are a world away from the hustle and bustle of one of the worlds most busiest cities. You could easily spend an entire day just getting... More

Let's be honest - It does not get any better then this. Especially on weekends when the live (and free) entertainment turns out. We've been to parks all over the world, and this is always the best. But can we now admit it? Success has come to the point of WAY TOO MANY people there! New York may have reached... More

It was a wonderful time we had walking through Central Park. The only negative was the number of horse and buggy vendors we had to turn down trying to get us to buy a ride rather than walk. Loved the ducks and also watching the ice skating.

Central Park is a gem in nyc. I live in Manhattan and love the fact dogs are allowed off leash till 9am and after 9pm. Let alone once you get in the park you actually feel like you're not in a busy city great natural features and landscaping. Perfect for couples

Oasis for city dweller. I live near by. I wouldn't have bought my apartment if there were no Central Park. Great place to walk, I play tennis at the Tennis Center. I ride bicycle here too.

Get off your bus by Dakota building and see strawberry fields and stroll through the park. Come out at the Guggenheim and that's worth a visit using pass again. Then walk down past the zoo and have lunch in plaza basement wonderful place to eat
