Amazing place to visit. So many iconic landmarks. Totally made my holiday. Just a little advice don't try walking around it as it takes approx 4 hours. Jump on a bike , takes you around in an hour.

World renown park - the best place to walk anytime of the day. In the Summer - it is possible to have a sun tan right on the grass! Besides most important thing - you are in the Center of NY!
