    Since no one has lawns in NYC, they put them all together into one Great one. Do all the things you would in your own lawn, except you don't have to cut it.

    Central Park is the world’s largest man-made park. With its lakes and meadows the 340-hectare recreation area could easily encompass the principality of Monaco twice over.
