Central Park

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageCentral Park may seem like a contradiction because it is located in the middle of skyscrapers. Nevertheless, this patch of green paradise offers a great escape from the city's hustle and bustle. It opened in 1876 and was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Some of the Park's highlights include the Shakespeare Garden, The Belvedere Castle, The Central Park Conservancy, and the Central Park Wildlife Center.
