A tourist in New York City. Central Park, the lake.

Visita obligada, visita que merece la pena es el gran lago de Central Park rodeado, a cierta distancia de los grandes rascacielos de Nueva York. Sin embargo ello no quita el aire plácido del lugar siempre con gente paseando o corriendo por su borde



The Central Park Lake, in conjunction with the Ramble, creates an essential part of the "Greensward" design plan created by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux when designing the initial features of what would become Central Park.
What is now a stunning and picturesque 18-acre lake was once nothing more than a large, untamed swamp. After its excavation in 1857, the Lake was opened for its first winter of ice-skating in 1858.
....Like many other Park attractions, the Lake was also restored by the Central Park Conservancy. It was reopened to visitors in 2008. The Lake is a sight not to be missed if you're in the mood for a calming boat ride through bamboo patches, bridges, and natural splendor in the Park.
