Just like the movies! So pretty and a lovely, peaceful escape from the craziness that is New York! We were lucky enough to see it covered in snow. Just wish we had time to see it all. One of my favourite parts of my trip...More

This is a must do whilst you're in New York. The walk around is as long as you want to do. There are loads of statues/recognisable areas from movies to see. You can get a horse and cart ride around if that's you're kind of...More

The park and the visit is an absolute must. Remember to wear really comfortable shoes because if you see everything, it will be about 3 miles of walking at minimum. We started our tour from the Met where we had visited. We saw many things...More

You cannot go to NYC without exploring Central Park. Museums, Strawberry Fields, bridges, paths, famous filming spots, serenity in the middle of chaos and so much more! Great relaxing time for anyone in the middle of a city that never sleeps.

Nice to casually walk around. Kids went ice skating (super expensive). We didn’t get to visit much of the park on this trip, but pretty views back towards the city.

It is what it is: a park. Saying that, it’s probably the most iconic park in the world, made famous in many movies and television shows. It’s quite diverse and easy to forget at times that you’re in the middle of Manhattan, that is until...More

Central Park is great! Besides being a beautiful place right in the center of NYC, it also features many such as the ZOO and museums. It is a great place, specially during the warmer months.

It will be cold. Also make sure that you and your guests have excellent directions to the Cove and that they will need to walk there, probably from the West 72d Street entrance.
