Amongst the millions of people, the subways, the taxis, the skyscrapers, the shouting, the honking, the electricity that is New York…is Central Park.
Some quick facts about the park:
- The park is 2.5 miles long by 0.5 mile wide
- 58 miles of pedestrian paths
- Over 6,000 benches
- Inside the park is a zoo, the Metropolitan Museum, 2 skating rinks, a 1.5 mile track around the reservoir, and over 20 playgrounds
It is surreal to find such tranquility in a city that is as busy as New York. We have already been there numerous times but each time we walk a new path, and marvel at the improbable silence.
