Central Park
Northeast corner of 66th Street and Central Park West

Since the 1860s Central Park as acted as the “lungs” of the city, providing a refuge from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan life for residents and tourists alike. Explore Manhattan’s collective backyard and learn about the physical construction of the largest man-made work of art in New York, visit the scenic “literary walk,” enjoy the exquisite architectural details in the Bethesda Arcade and Terrace, and lose yourself (not literally- you’ll have a guide!) in the rustic Ramble. Guides may also discuss the Sheep Meadow, Belvedere Castle, Bow Bridge, the skating pond, Seneca Village, the Casino and the site of the “rocking chair” riot. Prepayment Optional Many Big Onion customers prefer to pay in advance. Prepayment also helps us determine group size and appropriate guide numbers. To preregister and pay for your tour, click the “Book Now” button below. You will receive an e-mail confirmation and receipt once your order has been processed. We regard an senior one 65+ years and a student anyone enrolled in full-time study. Please bring ID indicating senior status (i.e. age) and/or full-time active enrollment. - See more at: http://www.bigonion.com/tour/central-park/#sthash.qAtdXD9v.dpuf
