Don't think you'll escape the crowds here--that's a hopeless cause anywhere in New York. But even New Yorkers occasionally need to have nature around them, and they don't mind--most of them probably even like--the fact that all around this nature you can still see tall buildings. Central Park is a great place to walk your dog, or row a boat for a while (albeit in a tiny pond with a crowd of other boats). You can walk around looking at the bridges (each one was designed separately and hence is completely unique), or just sit down on the grass and relax. If you close your eyes, perhaps you could even shut out the screams of the kids. New Yorkers use ipods for artificial assistance with that task.

Address: Between 69th and 110th Streets
Directions: It's where 6th and 7th Avenues would have been. 5th Avenue runs right along its side.
