Central Park for me is a great part of NYC. We walked from our hotel , The New Yorker to Harlem and loved it. Revisited the Wisteria Pagoda that was in such vibrant colour on our visit last June. Meandering, we dropped by the Dakota Building before a brief visit to Strawberry Fields. Then up the hill to Nutters Battery before arriving in Harlem. I agree with some reviewers that it’s not the most striking park but this is the centre of Manhattan. I have it as a must , like the Brooklyn Bridge and Grand Central Station on any visit to New York.

So I had the great idea of going during winter time and it was freezing. You can’t enjoy the place when is so cold so I recommend you to visit during spring or summer. So beautiful and relaxing. You can take your bike and a pretzel and just enjoy !

We visited the park on three separate days when we were there in December. We went ice skating. Went on a horse and carriage ride, and visited the john lennon memorial. Also it’s a great place just to wonder a round and relax from all the hustle and bustle of the city.

Ok, it’s big, but; it’s poorly signposted many amenities were closed at the time of our visits. Pity as the weather has been perfect
