2. Have a picnic in Central Park
Central Park is enormous but maybe the best places to go if you are in NYC for only a short period of time are Belvedere Castle and Sheep Meadow.
You can see Belvedere Castle in the middle of the park. Besides it, you can lay your blanked on the grass and enjoy some peace and quiet as well as some of the best views in the entire city. Of course, while you’re there, it would be a shame to forget to take pictures of the beautiful castle.
As for Sheep Meadow, it is a 15-acre pasture which served for sheep up to 1934. Today, it is a perfect place to relax and have a picnic. It is one of the areas of the park where you can actually enjoy the silence and the foods and drinks you brought. If you forgot to bring food, don’t worry – there’s plenty to buy in the park.
