Why locals recommend it

A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.

We are located 40 minutes away via Long island Rail Road/Subway to Central Park. Central Park is fantastic year-round, and is a must-see for anyone coming to New York. This park is one of the city's most notable attractions. This 843-acre green space is a favorite of New Yorkers and tourists; you can go there to exercise, dine, go to the zoo and more.
