Not as big and popular as Central Park but it is more intimate. It''s not too far from times square and all the goodies you can get there.

This is a park like Luxembourg gardens in Paris. It’s like everyone’s front yard. Have a good meal, play ping pong, or just chill. Totally great people watching.
