"Central Park" Central Park Tip by SirRichard

Central Park, New York City: 61 reviews and 72 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: You can walk into Central Park and it comes a moment when you see absolutely NO BUILDINGS, only trees, rivers and birds (don't do it at night, please!) This is what most amazes me about Central Park. You can be surrounded by skycrappers and 10 minutes later all surrouded by woods.<BR>
In the photo you can see the skating playground in winter.

CP goes from 59th Street to 110th Street and half a mile from Fifth Avenue to Eighth Avenue and was the first urban landscaped park in the United States. Originally conceived in the salons of wealthy New Yorkers in the early 1850's, the park project spanned more than a decade and cost the city ten million dollars.<BR>
You can find inside numerous restaurants, playgrounds, the Metropolitan Museum, the Central Park Zoo, and Wollman Rink.
