We took the subway to the UES. The garden is in the NE part of Central Park. Beautiful tulips in April, a couple of fountains. There's no charge to enter. We took many lovely photos. Walked down to the MMA after, very nice day.

This pristine corner of Central Park is always a joy. Every hedge, every sweeping view of the garden or cossetted little nook is filled with interesting plants that change constantly. From tulip time, through spring, summer, the blazing colors of fall, or the austere branches in winter, you will be renewed and inspired. The colors, the patterns, the thoughtful designs,... More

The Conservatory was recommended as place to sit and reflect after a visit to the Museum of the City Of New York which is directly across the street. As a rule I do not enjoy gardens but this was such a surprise that I found myself enjoying the walk. I felt like I was in Hyde Park or some other... More

This gorgeous garden and seating is located on East 105 Street and 5th Avenue entrance in the heart of SPANISH HARLEM'S part of Central Park. Peaceful, safe, restrooms, and a beautiful water fountain. Come here... More

Great spot for pictures and taking a break from the New York hustle. Bring lunch, sit on a bench and spend thirty minutes recharging your batteries!

A beautifully planted, well-maintained flower garden full of a variety of butterflies. Nice shady areas to sit if it is a hot day and peaceful far from the madding crowds.

I was not that excited about going to Ellis Island. We had gone to Liberty Island and had the option of getting off the boat at Ellis Island also. My friend wanted to go there so of course I went with her so glad I did. Beautiful building with many displays. We went on a free tour with one of... More

A beautiful area on the side of Central Park. Blooming flowers and carefully crafted shrub designs with quiet walkways, fountains, and sitting areas.
