New York isn’t just a city of concrete and skyscrapers. The 843 acres of nature of Central Park can make you feel like you have entered a forest. Completed in 1873 before most of the city surrounding it, Central Park houses unexpected treasures. Walk through the North Woods to the gated Conservatory Gardens and chat with head gardener Erwin. Then drift down 5th and re-enter for a gourmet lunch at one of the most scenic spots in the park, the boathouse!
Jonathan, a native New Yorker with an MFA degree in Art, will knowledgeably lead you to some of the most picturesque spots in the park. Wander the North woods by foot path along a stream. Descend to the elaborate Conservatory Gardens, a secret Eden away from the hustle and bustle. Learn about the history of the park and how the city sprung up around it. Visit the boathouse and go for a row after lunch, weather permitting.
