Walking tours in NYC

Check out the Central Park Conservancy about free walking tours in Central Park.

If you are more energetic, Check out Big Onion tours. They charge for their tours, but do provide a wide range of interesting and educational tours. I like the one that originates in Downtown Manhattan has a stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge and ends up in Brooklyn.

Check out my site for more things to do in NYC at NYC Info
if you can't wait until I update my Blog.
Also leave me a Post if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day in NYC.

Central Park Conservatory Gardens

This is a great place to visit. It is located at 5th Ave and 105th Street. Handicap access is at 106th Street. The admission is free.
It is a great place for a relaxing stroll while enjoying the fountains and landscaped gardens. There are many seats to sit and read a book, relax and brose the scenery. Depending on the time of year, certain flowers are in bloom.
They also have guided tours - you need to check with the Central Park Conservancy for dates and times. It is truly one of the peaceful areas of central park. Dogs must be leashed, there is no Rollerblading or Bicycling and no loud radios. It is a pleasure to visit and relax and enjoy the quite atmosphere away from the hustle of NYC. Below are some pics that I have taken on my last visit.
