New York's general crime rate has tumbled over the decades but that's down mainly to the no nonsense 32,000 head of NYPD in the city. Its 843 acres stretches from Midtown Manhattan West 59th street to North 110th and the rectangular park kept arrow straight on each side by Fifth Avenue on the east and Central Park West ... more

Central Park, the big green space in Manhattan, the park you see in every New York City romcom where the pretty girl drops her glove and the guy of her dreams just so happens to pick it up, be it Carey grant or Justine Timberlake, John Cusack or Ryan Reynolds, soon taking a horse and carriage ride around and through the park at night to seal the deal. It's where Harry met Sally, Woody enthused with Annie and Tom dithered over some Hanky Panky with Meg. What Woody Allen really got up to with his lovers overlooking Central Park we can no longer comment on for legal reasons. Like Woody's love life, the reality of Central Park by night is less appealing, a place ... Read the complete review

As I have said in other reviews I was so lucky to be able to tour New York City in April. One of the places that we chose to go was to Central Park. We choose to exit the Subway at Times square and walk down to Central Park. As we wanted to get lunch along the way we really enjoyed our leisurely walk to Central Park. Stopping to eat a great slice of Pizza where 2 slices of pizza and a can of soda was only $2.98 and for us that was lunch for 2. As we continued on our way I noticed that the closer we got to the park the more it changed to people just strolling along rather than people in a hurry to get some where like they were in Times Square. As we got ... Read the complete review

Central Park is in the middle of Manhattan and covers a pretty large area of the city. It's not just a park, it has several attractions within it. There's Central Park Zoo, the boating lake, restaurants, Strawberry Field near the Dakota Bulding where John Lennon was shot, fountains, playgrounds, the Alice in Wonderland sculpture and some nature trails. You will not get round it in a day! You can also hire rollerblades, go horseriding or go for a ride in a carriage. Sheep's meadow also has lot's of people hanging out there. It really is an oasis in a very busy city and there's several attractions very near the park, such as the Plaza Hotel and the ... Read the complete review

The thing that really really amazes about New York City is Central Park. It is in the middle of Manhattan, which is not exactly the biggest island there is. Manhattan itself is something along the lines of 13 miles by 2 miles. When you consider what is in it, that is rather small. Now Central Park covers 843 acres. For those that have no idea how big it is, it covers 6% of Manhattan. I've just looked up some facts on the park. If you walk all the paths within the park, you will have walked 58 miles!!!! Imagine how long it would take to walk all around them. Having visited the city a couple of times, I have had the pleasure of having a stroll ... Read the complete review

I absolutely adore Central Park. It was my second favorite place in Manhattan from both our holidays there this year, second only to the Top of The Rock. Our first visit in March we entered in through the south east corner of the park, and it was absolute chaos on that corner. A massive hotel looms over you, with a fountain, and what can best be described as a taxi rank, which was just a blur of yellow and black. The only downside was the smell! The horses and carriages have their own track to follow, which is marked out by a beaten path of hoof marks and wheel tread and the inevitable trail of manure. Thankgod it wasn't warm that time ...
