If Central Park isn't your favorite place in New York yet, look again. It is 843 acres of trails, paths, ponds, and fields--peopled with amblers, runners, bikers, dog-walkers, tourists, and those seeking solitude (in the Ramble), sun (in the Sheep Meadow), or sociality (along the Mall). Olmstead and Vaux were genius to design this magical place that could transcend you from the daily obligations to heaven in minutes.
59th to 110th Streets @ 5th Ave - Central Park West
