    Whenever I visit New York City I'm always in awe of Central Park. It's so awesome that a place like this exists amongst the hustle and bustle and skyscrapers. The park is huge so you won't be able to explore it all. Just mosey on it and walk around on a nice, sunny day. There's so much vibrant activity in the park, making it an excellent place to people watch. Lots of local celebrities frequent the park (I've once seen Howard Stern jogging and Reese Witherspoon walking) and they blend in just like normal folks. You'll find a mix of locals and tourists, giggling school kids on their way to the zoo, elderly couples admiring the flowers, dogs enjoying the sunshine, lovers cuddling on blankets and more. Central Park is magical any time of the year.

    The reservoir is an amazing place to let off some steam for an evening run, or catch a glimpse at the beautiful city skyline!

    A jungle within the concrete jungle - the gargantuan Central Park stretches between 59th Street and 110 Street of Manhattan. There are all sorts of activities for everyone year-round: bird watching, carriage horse riding, rock climbing, and ice skating just to name a few. During warm seasons the park is filled with events such as concerts and performances. Bring your walking shoes if you decide to visit Central park.

    Take a stroll down the main walk near Sheeps meadow. Any day will feel like magic strolling hand in hand or even alone. Gotta love the park!

    Through the busy streets of New York city there lays a peaceful park. The park is magical. This ice skating rink is in the park but the city line is right beside you as you skate away!

    Rowing, jogging, biking, hiking, sunbathing, softball playing, and most obvious .... Sight seeing. This park has it all.

    Central Park has starred in movies and books. It is a great place for a picnic, walk, or for people watching. It is an oasis among an urban sea.

    An oasis in the middle of Manhatten's busy and noisy streets. Great getaway in any season, especially fall and spring.

    I once had an opportunity to see Central Park from one of the skyscrapers on the edge of the park and wow! It's amazing to see with all these tall buildings around the outside a massive park just cut right into the center of the city. They also still offer traditional horse and carriage rides around the park area.

    Central Park is really big. I repeat: Central Park is really big.

    I suggest one view a map before thinking of traversing from the West to East side or vice versa. The roads curve in such a way that you could be wandering endlessly.

    Central Park is probably one of the most famous parks in the world. It's also quite beautiful. From the zoo to the reservoir, it serves as a lovely center for all the great museums around it.

    No place better in NYC on a spring or summer day. Can get crowded, but ideal for a picnic.
