Central Park, New York's Backyard

written by: silverqueen
 
Central Park is 843 acres and runs for 50 city blocks and hosts 25 million visitors a year. These are the cold facts from the Central Park Official Website. Yet, the wonder of Central Park is to be found just around the next bend or over the next slope. There are statues with wonderful stories to tell, gardens filled with flowers, a zoo, outdoor theaters, and lakes and ponds on which to ice skate or sail miniature yachts. Best of all is the people watching: young, old, the guy next door or the millionaire. So, step inside, I'll save you $ 35.00 on the carriage ride.
