    Stop At: Central Park, Central Park, New York City, New York

    The grandest stage in New York City, Central Park functions as everyone's front and back lawn, playground, meditation spot - you name it - almost everything has happened here. But it is a product of meticulous design, and now we can enjoy its preservation thanks to the people of the city - its immediate neighbors as well as its occasional visitors. Celebrate the Park!

    Stop At: Upper East Side, New York City, NY

    Legendary as the pinnacle of living for the "upper crust," the Upper East Side is much more varied and storied than that might imply. But, we shall see the Cook Block, and a town house or two of some of estimable wealth, but we will also hear about the history of this neighborhood - for that is what it is: a neighborhood of people and institutions of many from all over the world.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Pass By: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave, New York City, NY 10028-0198

    The largest collection of art in the Western Hemisphere, and second in size only to the Louvre, the Met is a lifetime's worth of attractions - and the jewel of this neighborhood.

    Stop At: Belvedere Castle, 79th Street Mid Central Park, New York City, NY 10021
