The park contains several natural-looking lakes and ponds, extensive walking tracks, two ice-skating rinks, the Central Park Zoo, the Central Park Conservatory Garden, a wildlife sanctuary, a large area of natural woods, a reservoir with an encircling running track, and the outdoor Delacorte Theater which hosts the "Shakespeare in the Park" summer festivals.

Harlem is a large, vibrant and exciting neighborhood located in the Northern section of Manhattan. Since the 1920s, Harlem has been known as a major African-American residential, cultural and business center. In the 1920s and 1930s, Central and West Harlem was the focus of the "Harlem Renaissance", an outpouring of artistic work without precedent in the American black community. The Apollo Theater opened on 125th Street on January 26, 1934, in a former burlesque house. The Savoy Ballroom, on Lenox Avenue, was a renowned venue for swing-dancing, and was immortalized in a popular song of the era, "Stompin' At The Savoy". In the 1920s and 1930s, between Lenox and Seventh Avenues in central Harlem, over 125 entertainment places operated, including speakeasies, cellars, lounges, cafes, taverns, supper clubs, rib joints, theaters, dance halls, and bars and grills. More recently, Harlem past and present residents have made major contributions to the hip-hop movement including such names as Tupac Shakur, Big L, Kurtis Blow, Immortal Technique, A$AP Rocky, Mase, P. Diddy and Azealia Banks. Harlem is also the birthplace of popular hip-hop dances such as the Harlem shake, toe wop, and Chicken Noodle Soup.

Times Square

Times Square is a major intersection in Manhattan at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Times Square has achieved the status of an iconic world landmark and has become a symbol of its city. Times Square is principally defined by its animated, digital advertisements. Times Square is the site of the annual New Year's Eve ball drop. On this night hundreds of thousands of people congregate to watch the Waterford crystal ball being lowered on a pole atop the building (though not to the street, as is a common misconception), marking the new year. On average, about 300,000 revelers crowd Times Square for the New Year's Eve celebrations. Times Square is right next door to New York's famous Broadway Theater District.

The Village had and still has a cutting-edge cabaret and music scene. Village resident and cultural icon Bob Dylan by the mid-60s became one of the foremost popular songwriters in the world. Dozens of other cultural and popular icons got their start in the Village's nightclub, theater, and coffeehouse scene during the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.
