If you go to NY City and you have limited time, put this stop at the bottom of your list!
It's light a Mexican Beach Resort, everybody is selling something and they don't take "NO" for an answer.
Drive by this "Park" and don't stop!

This weekend we spend our Saturday and sunday in the Snow covered Central Park. It was all so pristine and beautiful. On saturday the very next day after the snowfall (Nemo) there were people of all ages all around the Park....enjoying the snow in their own manner. Some were riding the Rick-saw/ horse carriage to enjoy the beauty. Many, including us made their own version( tall/small/fat.) of... favorite "Snow Man". It was the fun day. Next day on Sunday we again went there today the kids were having there excellent time sliding down the snowy slopes in different colorful snow sliders.We walked till Belvedere castle passing through the happening & ever busy Bethesda Terrace......the lake was all frozen here. ...On reaching the Belvedere castle I was so delighted to see the awesome views......as a very wide area could be seen from there and it was looking like as if someone had spread a white carpet all over.
Needless to say Central Park is ever glowing in its own charm be it any season springs, fall, winters or summers ....you will love to go there anytime

I run at home in Michigan, but nothing is better than Central Park. I don't even wear my ipod when I am in the park because there is so much to see when running. I love New York City!

Well worth a visit if your in New York. We took a walk through the park after the Nemo snow storm last week, and it was magical. We also hired a horse and arrange to take us around the park to see the sights. Would really recommend it. Beautiful.

We have returned from a very snow covered New York and on ehighlight has to be central park, the shear size is amazing. The snow fall that has occurred just recently certainly sets it off as a classic att
