Can you hear Harry Nelson....Central Park is beautiful in all seasons, but Fall, Fall! OMG. Nice weather, not to cold, not to hot. Everyone meeting and enjoying themselves. Really big, take time to walk it or rent a boat. Many food options, but be prepared to wait. It is a very busy location.

Beautiful sunday afternoon brought out the crowds and the squirrels. So many hours can be spent here just stumbling around. Lots of performances going on the main thoroughfares and much much less on the more hidden little paths. Something for everyone and it seemed everyone was here on a beautiful sunday afternoon.

Nice place to relax. The weather was perfect to stay outdoors. It's a good place to just enjoy the open space.

Magnolia trees were blossoming, as well as lilacs, and there were tulips and narcissus flowering as well. It is a designated quiet space - no boomboxes, thankfully! There is a beautiful fountain featuring three young ladies... More

I think we missed the plant blooms by a few days. Very brown and not there yet, early April. Nice place, lots of people to watch. Smells of NYC are everywhere.

Love central park! Make sure to get a map or download an app to see different areas of the park. Each area has different charm and beautiful! I personally love northern part of the park where still looks woodsy and indigenous.

I brought my three children to the Zoo and they loved it. All of the animals were super active and engaging.

Yesterday, I drove through Central Park twice, first just to get from the West Side to the East Side and later from the East Side to the West side. Even if you go some blocks out of your way when driving, it is better than fighting the midtown traffic going crosstown and at the same time you can enjoy the... More
