    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.

    Bring your camera. Not only will you be able to capture the natural beauty of Central Park, but you are bound to run into one of NYC's picture-worthy celebrity locals

    Possibly the most relaxing place on earth. Plus, in the summer, it's basically a pseudo-beach. Just be careful -- you never know when an errant softball, football or frisbee will come flying at you.

    Our Amex Travel specialists recommend a stroll to the Vanderbilt Gate at 106th & 5th Ave to discover the Victorian-era designed Conservatory Gardens - a true secret garden!

    A beautiful part of the park - just don't go on the first weekend of spring/summer weather. It will be overrun.

    Great place to see a band. Memorable ones for me included Simon and Garfunkel and more recently (2011) the Black Eyed Peas

    The Great Blizzard of 1947 had a record-breaking snowfall with a total of 26.4 inches (67.1 cm) in Central Park. If there were any zombies in the park that day, they were buried for sure!

    Great place to lounge on the grass, soak up some sun, and people watch! Nice view of the Belvedere Castle, too. Just watch out for any incoming baseballs, footballs, and frisbees.

    Mostly here for summer softball games, but it's a great spot to relax, throw a softball or football around, lay out and enjoy the scenery of NYC.
