They say that the Eye of a Hurricane is a place of tranquil peace and one would not know the destruction happening just a short distance away. That's what Central Park is to Manhattan. In a city filled with buildings to rival Babel, and where everyone is always in a hurry to get nowhere, and deals are made for the... More

2 adults, 9 and 14 year old. One of the greatest parks: daytime, evening. Short strolls, long walks, jogs. some of the hired rides were a bit expensive but you don;t need them. Could do a horse carriage but I think just walking around is great. we used it as a scenic route to get round the city. takes longer... More

We entered the Central park from the Columbus Circle entry and took a Rickshaw ride. The driver was very knowledgeable about the park and all the movie locations etc. We found the park very safe to enjoy and we saw heaps of people going about their ways to enjoy it. It was beautiful summer afternoon and we had a great... More

Central Park is my favorite place in New York, just a few yards in and you skip the fuzz and sounds of the city... Love it!!!

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed a 40 minute carriage ride around Central Park, got off and spent a happy couple of hours wandering around. Highlights were: the Balto statue…my daughter is a big Disney fan and gave us the detailed story whether we wanted to hear it or not. the 'Friends Fountain' where my daughter serenaded us with the...

As many places in New York, this is a must if you come for the first time to the Big Apple. Despite of its popularity I find nothing special about this park. Well, so many movies have been filmed there that one has the need to visit it, sure! But that's all.

visiting New York and not being in Central Park is like missing out on a true New York landmark and experience. It's not just a park, it's not just a Forrest, it's part of New York Manhattan life for New Yorkers and not being there you miss out on the experience on what makes the city to what it is.
