NYC's Central Park
in Manhattan is the most visited park in the United States (25 million visitors annually) and one of the most famous in the world. At 843 acres, it is a huge oasis in the middle of a giantic, bustling "city that never sleeps."
Up until the '80s, Central Park was known for its crimes, especially after dark, with approximately 1000 commited each year. After massive changes and reorganization, crimes are down to 100/year, making it one of the safest urban parks in the world.Of all my Central Park pics, I chose this one (while sitting on top of a double-decker tour bus) for the watercolor filter in Photoshop. I decided not to crop out the sidewalk and walls just so you could see how close it is to the road. It really IS in the middle of the city!
