You want to be a part of it, New York, New York! But after a while all those honking taxi horns and crowded sidewalks can make your brain hurt. Enter Central Park, an emerald green oasis in the middle of the madness. Rent a bike or rollerblades by the hour and cruise this urban wilderness. Escape to Strawberry Fields, roll past lakes and lochs, sniff out the hotdog sellers, and become part of Manhattan. The city is yours.
Even though it's surrounded by high rises, Central Park remains a tranquil escape right in the center of the Empire City. A fascinating place for people watching, Central Park is also one of the world’s most-filmed locations. So exploring here on a bike or rollerblades is a unique chance to experience brand new spaces that will feel strangely familiar.
Take in sights like Tavern On The Green, a much-loved restaurant featured in Edward Scissorhands, Beaches and Ghostbusters (this was also where John Lennon held his birthday parties). Couples from movies Love Story and Serendipity got all mushy on the ice at the Wollman Skating Rink. The Bandshell was a pitstop for the brooding Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffanys.
But even if you're not checking famous sights off your list, you'll find a day cycling or skating around Central Park is an unrivaled opportunity to get a taste of the city’s diversity. You'll see suited city financiers mix with morning joggers, well-kept housewives manoeuvre around kickball practices, and more. For many New Yorkers, Central Park is where they come for recreation, relaxation, and refreshment.
Roll up and join in; you’ll find there’s more than enough to fill a whole day - or a couple of hours if your schedule’s packed.
