Most agree Central Park’s vastness surpasses expectations, even when one goes in knowing it extends from 59th Street to 110th Street (843 acres in total). There are many miles of tree-lined pathways and grassy lawns, 20 playgrounds for the kids, and 9,000 benches for their parents. Plus, there’s a charming zoo, a carousel, an ice rink (in the winter), boat pond, and many fountains, monuments, sculptures and landmarks, including spots like Strawberry Fields for parents who are old enough to remember John Lennon. Hang out with your kids in Central Park a mild-weathered weekday and you’ll experience a veritable “Nanny Diaries” scene.

We were at Central Park on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We just walked around with no map, just enjoying the views.
