Officially completed in 1873, the park was constructed to provide public green space to New Yorkers to escape the chaos of the city. Central Park is featured in many blockbuster films like Wall Street, Kramer vs. Kramer, Maid in Manhattan, Ghostbusters, and Uptown Girls.

You can take the 4, 5 and 6 lines to access the Upper East Side of the park. If you are traveling by bus, you can take the M1, M2, M3 and M4 bus routes that cross the park along 5th Ave/Madison Ave.
