6. Central Park
Step off the crowded sidewalks of 59th Street into Central Park and you’ll hardly comprehend what lies before you: 693 acres of synthetic gardens, meadows, forests, and rolling hillsides. If you ambled down every certainly one of Central Park’s pathways, you will walk fifty-eight miles. Along the way, you bypass fountains, monuments, sculptures, bridges, and arches. Plus 21 playgrounds, a winter ice-skating rink, a zoo, or even a castle. But you’d hardly observe the four major crosstown thoroughfares, which cleverly disappear into foliage-covered tunnels.
