“Plenty to see and do”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a great place to wander round. If you can, try and spread it over a few days, so much to see and do, and it is easy to get a bit lost.

There are always various activities taking place and good for people watching.

Mind and take plenty of drinking water along with you as the hot dog carts are extortionate. I got a small bottle of water and was charged 4 bucks. I said he charged like a wounded buffalo and the guy just laughed, said it was the tourist season and he had to make a living.
I wished him well, and secretly hoped a wheel would fall off his cart on his way home, on 5th Ave, at the rush hour.

Well worth a visit.

“Just average - just scenery no exceptional views.”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Awful smells from the horse carriages and very crowded pathways. I would see other sights if you are on a tight schedule. Park is definitely on my memorable list of things to see in NYC.

“I Fell In Love With Central Park”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Its gorgeous. I visited the John Lennon tribute which I found over touristy, but wandering around looking at all the sights on a suny day was perfect. You must make it a priority when in New York
