Central Park, only three blocks away, is the most amazing attraction, entertainment venue and eye candy NYC has to offer. This 843 acre masterpiece of landscaping design and implementation was created in 1857 by Frederick Law Olmsted, landscape designer, and Calvert Vaux, architect all in keeping with the initial goal of creating and maintaining “a massive open-air oasis for a large metropolitan city”. Today, it is only better than it was; it just keeps getting better. Central Park was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1962, and remains the most visited urban park in the United States. It is the dividing line between Manhattan’s Upper East and Upper West Sides. Regardless of the season of the year – Central Park has much to offer visitors. How about a picnic, a meal or a snack; a bike ride; a run around the Reservoir; horseback riding on the many trails; walking your dog; taking a stroll; rock climbing; rollerblading; ice-skating; riding the Carrousel; bird watching; a game of chess; exploring the Ramble where you will forget completely that you are even in NYC; attending a concert – rock or classic, you name it; visiting the formal gardens; watching a fireworks display; learning some new dance steps; just to name a few. You will never tire of what the Park has to offer.
