Take a stroll, it is truley a wonderful park. It is every New Yorkers back yard, and you can see that everywhere. Plus there is a man on the street near the subway, selling fridge magnets for 13 for $10, what a deal. The zoo is in the park also. The bike rides are really expensive, but what isn't in New York.
If you want to people watch, this is it, the location of a life time.

We did the extended ride, and it was $120(with tip) for 4 of us. It was a beautiful day, and our Irish guide with a delightful brogue pointed out the sites in the park. It was a fun(if rather hokey) thing to do. We wondered if the horses are being exploited. Overall, glad we did it. Nice memory!

You could seriously spend all day here. It is a truly unique experience. A green oasis, surrounded by the skyline of NYC.

Visit some of the statues and monuments. Row a boat. Stop by Strawberry Fields. Walk along the meandering paths (Getting lost isn't hard, or really that bad!) People watch on a bench, or just sit on the grass.

Had a bike tour around the park (would recommend getting one of these as you get to see the ENTIRE park in the space of an hour and get commentary!)
Everything we saw was beautiful and we recognised loads of spots from films!
I don't see how you can go to New York and not visit Central Park, must see!
