Maybe it’s all said and seen about the most famous park in the world. But I think that Central Park has written as many pages of the past as he will do about the future. If NYC has a heart, this is Central Park. Forget the noise and rush from the streets, here you’ll find peace and so many interesting things to see and do. The Zoo, Metropolitan Museum, Natural History Museum, lakes, big green fields, sculptures, light, hidden corners, etc. One of the must see place in NYC.
Central Park is a public park at the center of Manhattan in New York City, New York, United States. The park initially opened in 1857, on 843 acres (3.41 km2) of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they entitled the Greensward Plan. Construction began the same year, continued during the American Civil War, and was completed in 1873.
Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962, the park is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the city government. The Conservancy is a non-profit organization that contributes 83.5% of Central Park’s $37.5 million dollar annual budget, and employs 80.7% of the park’s maintenance staff.
