A Fall Walking Tour through Central Park

I think walking tours are one of the best methods for exploring a major city’s districts. And New York City has its share of historic ones. On Sunday morning, I grabbed a last-minute spot on a Meetup event for a history walking tour around Central Park.

Officially opened in 1873, this 843-acre public park stretches from 59th Street to 110th Street, from East Side with Fifth Avenue all the way to Central Park West. Each year, 38 million visitors are said to come to this National Historic Landmark. As great to explore the park on your own, I also recommend signing up for a guided walk if you want to get more insights about the park’s various sections.

Starting from Sheep Meadow, heading west and eventually making our way to The Great Lawn, here is a pictorial view of sites on our walking route worth your time to stop at.
