  Central Park Boating
by davesut

Central Park - many people on VT recommend loads about central park and I echo many of them just a few 'amber' proceed with care tips that may help you

1. Beware there are no signposts in the park to direct you. The paths tend to meander around so you can spend ages getting nowhere.

2. On your first arrival enter the park at the southern end. This is where most of the things to do are. If you start north and work your way down you can get very tired before you find anything.

3. Get a map from an info booth and ask what is open/closed. This can save you a lot of grief later

4. Cafes and rest rooms may be shut for renovation. After finding the third building on a bounce closed I began to get a bit cheesed off.
