Central Park has earned a somewhat dubious reputation: it is sometimes considered a place where thieves and drug addicts congregate. In fact, crime in the Park area is much lower than in other areas of the city. The borough of Manhattan-where the Park is located, is considered one of the most respectable areas of new York, while there is a very high level of security. But you should be careful — it never hurts anywhere. Hundreds of policemen who are on duty in the Park every day have become an integral part of it. In summer, the number of people walking is close to several thousand. In winter, there are fewer people, but there are still a lot of skiers or those who like to sledge.

Here you can play basketball, badminton, roller skating, kite flying, recreational running (the latter is very good to do on the lake "Reservoir"), and so on.for fans of picnics and concerts, the "Sheep pasture"is perfect. Also, for those who like a quiet holiday in nature, you can recommend the "Big lawn". Boats and bicycles can be rented at the Park (Loeb Boathouse provides rental services). Fans of u's work.
