    If you want to get away from the noise of NYC head for Central Park a vast area of recreational space in lower Manhattan.

    Central Park Elegance

    The Tavern on the Green is part of Central Park history. The elegance surrounding it is out of another century. You really want to be delivered in a horse drawn cart, not a taxi.

    Central Park - you need a day to enjoy it. It can get dangerous at night, but take a whole day to see it.

    Just take it a bit at a time

    I haven't seen hardly any of the Park, but I do go to a different part each time I am in the city. Eventually I'll have it all covered.

    "Park" your rear here and watch the world go by

    Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and take a walk in THE park. There are also less energetic ways to see the park - try a horse drawn carriage or rent a bicycle.

    The boat pond

    How many times have you seen this pond in the movies? Very tranquil. When we passed this on Friday, it was mostly deserted. However on a Saturday there were miniature sailboat races underway.

    In May the dogwood was in full bloom. Gorgeous. So much more vibrant and bloom filled than the dogwoods we see in California (such as in Yosemite). What are they feeding them??

    ... pretend that you're listening to Hans Christian Anderson reading you one of his stories. What a great statue.

    On the path by the zoo you'll find this charming clock. I wish I'd been there at the top of the hour to see what happened. I suspect the animals would move.

    This pathway has cafes and delis on either side, and if you follow the path you'll be going by the zoo. Beautiful in May, isn't it?

    This was the first view I had of Central Park, as we exited the subway station. If you look carefully, you can see the street sign for Central Park. Nifty!

    Take a stroll in Central Park. It's Huge and a major portion of the city is devoted to it.
    A great place to get away from it all.

    It's a good choice to walk around Central Park after going to the Metropolitan Museum if you are not very tired...on Sundays this park is full, seems like a touristic beach in Spain.
