“Central Park is a great place to bring in the new year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Beautiful scenery and superb firework show without a crowd. That is what we had in Central Park on 2013 New Year's Eve. You could join the crowd, but we walked away from that. Where we stood we had a great view, and many others joined us.

“Any time, any season, simply allow 3 - 4 hours and go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The Dakota building is over the road from Central and fans of The Beatles will know the significance here.
Strawberry Fields is a site within the park that Yoko contributed heavily to after Johns death, and the "Imagine" still has the aura of John.
The park itself is easy to navigate, had an abundant birdlife, lakes bridges and an absorbing atmosphere.
It really should be visited if you are in NYC>

“Weekends are for the dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Walking Central Park and watching people playing with their dogs is a must-do for all animal lovers. If you ask nicely, you can also scratch Fido behind his ears.
