Great sanctuary in the middle of all the madness. Great to watch people enjoying themselves. Cycling, roller blading, volleyball. Just a lovely quiet space.

We visited Central Park in Autumn, which was absolutely breathtaking. So many things within the park to check out, and enjoy. Central Park is a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. A definite must-see in NYC!

A quite incredible walk after the hustle and bustle of main Manhattan. Take it as slow or fast as you want, some great performers along the way. A must visit if in Manhattan area.

Only spent a few hours. Boating and playground for the grandchildren was beautiful. The park in general is really nice and you can spend a nice amount of time there

Wonderful sights surround Central Park. We especially enjoyed some time spent in Strawberry Fields and a drink at the Boat House is a must
