Central Park

The must visit place

You cannot go to NYC and not visit Central Park. The city’s green gem, born in 1857, has several interesting points where you should just stop and enjoy: the model sailboats at the Conservatory Water, the Alice in Wonderland sculpture, the Bethesda Fountain Plaza, The Dairy, the Belvedere Castle atop Vista Rock, or the Bow Bridge – one of the park's most photographed locations. In the park's Strawberry Fields you can find the Imagine Mosaic, a tribute to John Lennon. You can enjoy the entire park with a bicycle ride, but be prepared with time to do it properly, so go early.

Cool Tip: Central Park has two ice skating rinks, Wollman Rink and Lasker Rink; during summer, the former is the site of Victorian Gardens’ seasonal amusement park, and the latter converts into an outdoor swimming pool.
