The lungs of NYC is perhaps one of the most visited and well known public areas in the world. It felt so familiar as I strolled through the seemingly endless urban park; this is because its been a popular filming location for decades. I suppose the best time to visit is Spring or Fall, but I had to make due with late Winter, Early Spring. Luckily, the sun was out.
Central Park is 843 acres and I quickly recognized my visit was going to be a work out! I walked from the South heading North. I enjoyed the arched bridges, many from the original design. The statues, fountains, ponds, and carrousel were all pleasant sites along the way. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum are conveniently located to make Central Park a day well spent.
Central Park is probably just what you imagined, albeit larger and a bit more nature than you might expect. I loved it, and I expect I will explore some of those more isolated potions of the park during my next visit.
