In the midst of all of the city's concrete and high-rises, Central Park brings greenery and shady places for relaxation--as well as a zoo, carousel, skating rink, theater, and several fountains--to the northern part of the city. Stroll, bike, picnic, or people-watch among 341 hectares (843 acres) of lakes, jogging paths, woodlands, walkways, lawns, and trees. One of the country's major historical landmarks, the park hosts frequent concert, plays, and art shows. Stop by the Alice in Wonderland statue, a favorite place for photos.

This is the largest park in NYC, its clean and it has many walking and bike paths. On a hot day you can find there thousands of people enjoying the shade. Nice day spending there .

Denny Moe is great with the kids. He remains himself but brings the kids into his world, regarding vibe and communication. Beyond that, he is a GREAT barber. Ive tried a few before him and once my sons hair was cut by Denny Moe, I no longer need to look. Beyond satisfied. His lines are precise. He cuts evenly all around. He is efficient at what he does. Other barbers have had a hard time with my sons hair because of the direction of hair growth and the amount growth disparity between areas. Ive never had to ask Denny Moe to go back over an area or fix a line. I highly recommend his establishment. In addition to that, his shop has a lax and comfortable feel.
Had a great time. If you are going to get a petty cab ride ( 3 wheel covered bike ) make sure you shop around. We decided to and the first one we found was $5 per minute. Luckily we declined and saw that others were different. Another one was $6.99 a minute. Eventually a guy came by asking people if they wanted a ride, his said "flat rate" he gave us 2 options. Small and large loop for $20 and $40 respectively. He was very knowledgeable and stop and took pictures of us. Large loop probably took close to a half hour. I gave him $60. It was a great way to see the park. Highly recommended if you find the right guy.
