This is a heaven for photographers! So many locations, angels, and contrasts ready to be eternalized.

Make sure you are ready for hiking. Like everything else in New York you are working with great distances.

A beautiful park, lots of culture and history to go with it. Make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes though as it’s huge. We even popped over the the plaza hotel (from home alone 2).

When I heard that Central Park was over 800 acres of space, I decided to use the horse-drawn carriage as my mode of transport for my park viewing. In spite of its size, it was crowded in spots. Someone was shooting a portion of a film which provided an attraction and joggers, walkers and people-watchers abound.

The park is just chucked with iconic sights. I twigged to the Bow Bridge, Bethesda Terrace and the picturesque Conservatory Gardens. Its hard not to find a shopping venue in NYC.....and yes Central Park has its own mall.

It must be a wonderful place in the warmer months but on a cold, blustery, rainy day in January we did not see it at its best.

You could still get a taste of the variety of walks available and the exposed granite bedrock is impressive.

Our guide was informative on the history behind the creation of the park and the bragging rights depending on where you live, adjoining the park.
