See the beautiful Victorian building known as the Central Park Dairy, as seen in Independence Day. Stroll through the Mall, also known as the Promenade, an area popular for socializing and relaxing.

Other sites you'll visit are the Bow Bridge, featured in films such as Autumn in New York, Keeping the Faith, The Way We Were and Woody Allen's Manhattan; the Naumberg Bandshell, featured in I’m Not Rappaport, Mighty Aphrodite and Hair; and Cherry Hill, whose beautiful springtime cherry trees make you feel as if you're part of a scene in The Mirror has Two Faces, and Cruel Intentions.
