The Balto Statue is located within Central Park and is pretty easy to find with the help of most online maps. It's a nice tribute to a Siberian Husky that trekked for hundreds of miles in freezing temperatures to deliver the diphtheria vaccine to fight...More

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum.
