Somebody should insert information about the merry-go-round, a rite of passage for many New Yorkers. I would, but I don't remember its name and don't know how to describe its location optimally. -- Michael 11:45, 19 June, 2006 (UTC)
Not the largest park by a long stretch
Central Park is most definitely NOT the largest park in NYC. It's #5.
Top Ten Largest Parks:
1. Pelham Bay Park Bronx 2,765 acres
You aren't supposed to sleep in Central Park. It seems to me that having a "sleep" section in this article opens the door for all kinds of abuses of marketing, because it could be claimed that almost any hotel on the Upper West Side, much of the Upper East Side, and the 50s is "close to Central Park." Central Park is a place to visit, not to sleep close to in order to visit, in this New Yorker's opinion. I would like to delete the "Sleep" section. Michael 00:30, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
Forgive me if this sounds silly, but can pitching a tent in Central Park (given it's allowed and safe) count as a way of sleeping there, and thus incorporated into the article? I remember once watching a documentary about a guy who was trying to travel around the world as environmentally sound as possible, which was likely aired on Discovery Channel in early 2000s (though I cannot recall the name of the show). The narrator did pitch a tent in Central Park, saying it was the greenest accommodation possible in New York City.—Vidimian 09:05, 30 January 2010 (EST)
