“Central Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Each part of it is different with several things to see and do. My favorite part of it is the one near the Guggenheim Museum where the reservoir is. The view to the other side of the lake is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. It is worth lots of pictures. Prepare yourself to walk along it (or do some exercise, hire a bike or simply find a place to sit and enjoy the view...). Make sure you go there.

“Pedi cabs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

I would highly suggest taking a pedicab ride through central park. They are longer then the horse and buggy rides and they will stop and let you out to take pictures.

“don't miss the northern half”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Central Park is wonderful, but most visitors rarely venture above 72nd St. As you go farther north, the park has less in the way of monuments, bridges, statues, but a lot more nature. Especially notable are the Conservatory Garden at 105th St., and the Harlem Meer at 110th St.

“Mind you dont get lost!”

So much to do and so many things to see. You'll just keep going back for more. I liked to just go and relax and soak up the atmosphere. Truly an amazing place to be!

“NY is not NY without the Central Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

The best park you could ever visit inside a city. Not only because wherever you go inside the park you could feel that you are inside a movie but also because the park it has so many things to offer you, from running or riding a bike or just chilling on the grass. There are so many things to do and it's worth several visits in your stay
