We saw the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir while riding bikes in Central Park. It is a great place to take a walk/run and take pictures of the surrounding area.

Before entering Central Park make sure you get a map from one of the many kiosks, we were given some great tips on where to visit in this vast park! The reservoir is towards the top end, it’s very peaceful and extremely relaxing. Ideal for...More

When you're going for a walk you pass here. It just happens to be that Jackie O had a great love of the city and nature. She spent many years in NY as an editor. I would not consider this a historical landmark.

I love Central Park in general but walking around the Reservoir is definitely one of the, if not the most, favourite things to do in NYC.

An another place to take some photos in NYC. Nice view and walkway. We thought the place is always crowded, but also beautiful with the people. It was nice to be there.
