central park north

When people think Central Park, they usually think of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, Strawberry Fields, or the Boathouse. Maybe they even think of the Great Lawn or the Central Park Zoo. There’s a whole lotta of stuff in Central Park, but the point is, most rarely think of what goes on at the north end of the park.

Admittedly, there’s not a whole lot and it’s a trek away from the museums and touristy areas, but it’s really quite peaceful as a result. Originally Central Park only went up to 106th Street, but in that added space (106th to 110th) there’s Harlem Meer (seen below), with ‘meer’ being the Dutch word for ‘lake.’ So next time you visit Central Park, keep in mind that there’s a north side to explore.
