A nice walk

A nice walk away from the chaos of Manhattan. Very quiet in January, very little road noise in the middle of the park, also much less cold biting wind away from the skyscrapers.

Went to the Good Morning America Summer Concert with our family and saw Jason Derulo perform. Awesome experience and to witness this beautiful park in the middle of NYC was just an incredible site. We also rented bikes and bikes through the park - which was my personal highlight of our trip. Central Park is a MUST SEE. We will... More

Plan to spent some time there, you will really enjoy it, even in winter time. The park is so big, you can spend hours walking there. Probably you will be lucky to listen an opera singer in a small tunnel with excellent acoustics there.

Central park is a great refuge in the middle of NYC. I visited in the heat of summer where the concrete jungle is radiating heat from every surface so Central Park is a nice and cool escape from that. Grab a cold drink and find a clear patch of grass for a rest during your day sightseeing

Manhattan is such an urban jungle, with Art Deco skyscrapers and millions of people power-walking to and from work, so it's amazing that in the middle of all of that, there's a place where you can forget that you're in a city. Central Park is one of my favorite places to visit on a nice day: with sports fields, running... More

I visited in winter so the trees were all without leaves. It was still a nice stroll, though. It's not as varied or large as San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. But it's also much easier to get to for a quick outdoor infusion.
