NEW YORK CITY CENTRAL PARK on a sunday

The Central Park in New York City, Manhattan, initially opened in 1857 on 843 acres ( 3.41km2) . It’s size and cultural position has served as a model for many urban parks including San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and Munich’s Englischer Garten and many more parks over the globe.

I spend an entire day walking around in bridle paths and roads over some graceful bridges watching jugglers and skaters, dodging from speedy bicycles, dipping my feet in one of the artificial lakes and listening to free spirited musicians.

One of the many attractions in the Central Park is the Carousel. The famous carousel ride  has been very popular since 1871 when the original attractions opened. Later on three more carousels opened, but some of them burned down. The first One was powered by a mule and a horse who walked in a hidden compartment undergound below the attraction. The animals were trained to start and stop with a foot tap from the ride’s operator above the ground.

The East side of Central Park is framed by most famous museums, it’s called the museum mile.
