Carriage Ride in the park with my sweetheart. Carriage was great, driver was ideal, friendly and knowledgeable of the park sights. Just enough guiding, not too much as to ruin the peaceful time with my girl.

Well, it's certainly a beautiful park and the zoo is alright, with exception to the staff... they're fairly rude. In fact we encountered a lot of rude staff at the Central Park Zoo :( Not cool .

We have been to this fabulous park many, many times. This last visit, we took a tour with Free Tours by Foot and it was fabulous! Your need to know the founders dreams and designs for the park to truly understand it. Go to the park and go every time you go to New York. It is one of a... More
