A colorful and peaceful oasis removed from the craziness of the city can be found in the heart of the city in Central Park, the most beloved of all New York attractions.
Opened in 1857, Central Park is an enormous 843 acre stretch of tranquil land occupied by all flavours of life, from walkers and joggers to street entertainers and food and retail vendors. The people-watching prospect in the park is just one of the great cultural aspect of visiting, however. Another is the shear relaxation and beauty offered by Central Park. Go for a walk or bike ride through the park on the many amazing walking paths, or go for a carriage ride and experience the park the way people might have in the 19th century.
Central Park is celebrated by visitors and residents alike as the top of all New York attractions. It can be enjoyed as a family destination, a great place to go with friends, or a majestic place to spend a romantic day with that special somebody.
