Take a stroll in the Famous Central Park

This lavishly decorated Victorian-era park was made for the enjoyment of New Yorkers, and to make a positive impression on visitors. The locals who had traveled wanted something larger than the parks in London and Paris. Hence, this is no town square! It runs 4.1 km or 2.5 miles North and South. It's a giant park sculpted from the land as it lay at the time.

Description

Take a walking tour, live-streamed from this famous Victorian-era park, made for the enjoyment of New Yorkers, and lavishly decorated to outdo the fame of various others in Paris and London.
You will see glittering outcrops of bedrock, two separate bodies of water, gorgeous little bridges, dozens of curved walking paths, and one straight long path overhung by American elm trees. This path is studded with statues of writers, beginning with Shakespeare.
City streets pass under the park through tunnels. Only one street passes over the surface of the park. We will go under it through an arcade of Canadian sandstone topped with English tiles from Stoke-on-Trent.
You will recognize movie locations from such films as 27 Dresses, Elf, Home Alone 2, and John Wick among dozens of other scenes from famous films. The tour ends at the park's centerpiece, Bethesda fountain.
