My favourite place to visit in NYC. Everything here is just so beautiful and just how you see it in the movies. Could spend hours here just taking in the atmosphere and all it's quirks. Have done the horse and carriage ride twice now and loved it both times. The carriage men are really friendly and know a lot about... More

We had the benefit of seeing the park with snow and with beautiful sunny skies. Loads of paths to explore with statues, fountains and loads of wildlife. Also lots of bike paths for those who wanted to hire bikes. Only sad thing is the crowds of salemen on each entrance selling bike rides, horse tours, bus trips and merchandise. Otherwise... More

We arrive right after the snowstorm, and we had a pristine snow covered Central Park to explore. New York City park services did an excellent job of clearing walking paths with unbelievable speed. Always recommend a stroll through central park.

Central park is one of my favourite locations in the world. The serenity with all the hussle and bussel all around make it something special. Central park covered in snow just makes it even more magical. Stopping to watch the ice skating or visiting the zoo just provided the most relaxing and special moments of our break. If you are...

New Yorker's are the most helpful people. I need only look puzzled and someone inevitably stops to ask where I need to go. One kind man save me much time with a direct route to the Guggenheim.

We spent the afternoon strolling through the park. It is an amazing park in the middle of America's largest city. For all the hustle and bustle of NYC, the park is a serene place and just a lovely place to visit. You have to include it in a trip to the Big City!

Having enjoyed the park for many years I can tell anyone that on a clear day on the weekend its a great pace to visit. Pack a lunch 9brown bag it) pull up a rock and enjoy. So many things always going on. Bring your camera go for a fanatic walk.
