First of all though a bit of information about Central Park: the park is 843 acres or 6% of Manhattan acreage. It is six miles from north to south and half a mile across. Approximately 40 million people visit Central Park every year, there are 24,000 trees and 9,000 benches which if placed end to end would go for seven miles. Are you impressed yet? 275 species of migratory birds stop off in Central Park, there are 7 ornamental fountains (and 150 drinking fountains) and 36 bridges and arches. Whew!
So come for a walk with me in Central Park - but be careful...it's slippery!
