“Beautiful, expansive park in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

You could spend all day in Central Park, it is so large. Ask some locals or your hotel about the best entrances to use and enjoy the scenery or use it to walk between destinations in the city. There were horse mounted police which helped it feel safe for us. (I probably would not walk there at night, however, especially by myself for prudence sake).

“See where all your favourite movies were filmed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

I love Central Park for the trees and greenery, but also because almost every bridge or skyline is from a movie you have loved. It's exciting thinking of how many famous people have stood on the same ground!
