The Dana discovery center was a beautiful building located inside of Central Park and adjacent to the Harlem Meer. Inside were workers willing to answer any questions and plenty of informational pamphlets. On Mondays you can rent a fishing pole and bait absolutely free for 4 hours. We took advantage of this and had some fishing on a lovely Memorial Day inside of Central Park. The people inside were very polite, offered instruction, and the process for borrowing the pole was seamless. They needed to see ID and write down your phone number. When you returned it, the scratched your name and number off the list. There was no line and it took no time to get in and out, despite the fact that the park was jam packed for the holiday. This place is truly a hidden gem.
