Spanning across 843 acres of Manhattan island is the pleasure ground of all New Yorkers, Central Park. The city has always been a beehive of activity and people would probably go crazy here if it wasn’t for the natural sanctuary Central Park brings the inhabitants here. Thank goodness people were foresighted enough to do city planning in the 1850s…
I’ve meandered through Central Park on various occasions and, despite the number of people in New York and having read that it’s always crowded, found quite the contrary.
Yes, of course there are parts of it that are quite busy, but there are also areas almost entirely devoid of people. I even found myself alone at points and I’m not surprised a guy managed to build hidden treehouses all over.
Central Park is gorgeous and tranquil, perfect for getting lost. I had no idea there were so many things to see inside including a castle, theater, an obelisk, a reservoir, ponds, and more.
It took several trips, but I think I covered the grounds fairly well and for lack of words to describe the serene atmosphere… I turn rather to images. Enjoy:)
That’s it… for a concrete jungle, New York still has plenty of green spaces to hide out in. Heck, I bet you could even camp here;)
