Great Central Park

Exceptional in every every way. New York would not be New York without Central Park! I spent a lot of time just sitting and being. Next time I am hiring a bike and exploring. Would love too ice skate but alas not sure if that is available in May.

Central Park

Central Park, the green heart button in the Big Apple, is also the most famous park in the world. The fictional film and television has captured it far and wide, making it famous and known as if it were around the corner. In fact, what you see is real: take away lunch or quick sandwich before returning to work, steep paths or walking, cycling and running, horse riding and carriage rides, volleyball and basketball. Everything is possible in Central Park.

The Skating Ring

This ring is located in Central Park; it is treat to watch during winter days (during summer it is turned into an open air restaurant) where persons of all ages participate with music in the background. A must watch!

Central Park

Central Park is just amazing for anything. Walking, Biking or just strolling with your friends or beau. You can take romantic horse and carriage ride round the park and bicycles and horses are availabe to rent. The lake is beautiful where you can hire boats during the summer or skate on it during winter.
