Originally designed by Frederick Law Olmstead to reflect the English pastoral life, Central Park became instead another proof of New York's artful skill in imitation nature while making it better. On these 843 acres of land, there are trees, shrubs, vines, rock, trails, and pathways. There are lakes, fountains, cascades, bridges, gardens, statues, an obelisk, a fort, and a castle. There are theatres, concert grounds, a great museum, and restaurants. There are playgrounds, carousel, discovery center, wild life center, and a children’s zoo. There is green grass for picnic and sunbathe, and green grass to contemplate life. There are places for jogging, biking, birdwatching, chess playing, and tai-chiing. There are specific areas for sledding, ice-skating, inline skating, boating, model boating, hockeying, tennis courts, volleyball courts, baseball fields, basketball courts, and a bocce court. In short, anything you want to find, you will find it in Central Park. Is that a valid enough reason for a few visits during your next stay in NYC?

I think Central Park is a cornerstone of American tradition.
