  • Beautiful park and world famous. The park is absolutely massive and would recommend you take at least half a day to walk through just some of the many paths the park has on offer. Amazingly calm place to be in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of America’s biggest city!!
  • I usually spend a good four hours here. I absolutely love jogging on a nice Saturday and get my five miles in. I even ran into my favorite fashion designer Carolina Herrera one day! You never know who is hanging at this maze of a park. I love NY!
