Central Park

Woody Allen. 1986


New York is known

as the city that never sleeps,
the city where the machines never stop producing, where people are always out, enjoying great food or a drink, overlooking the rooftops of downtown Manhattan, or appreciating an interesting cultural exhibition in one of its well-known museums. But there is also a place where the hustle and bustle of the city stops for a moment.

A place where time seems to stand still: my precious Central Park. Located between the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side of Manhattan, it is the fifth largest park in the city. Although the first areas of the park were opened to the public back in 1858, the park was completed in 1876. Its main attractions include the Rambla and Lake,

the Hallett Nature Sanctuary, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Fountain and the Sheep Park. Other fun attractions include the Wollman Ring, the Central Park Carousel, the Zoo and many more that the beautiful park has to offer. It is no secret that I have repeatedly used Central Park as a location for my films! As a New Yorker and a lover of my city,

several of my films, such as Annie and I and Manhattan, contain scenes shot in the park. Although it does not seem that the location is essential to the scenes shot, it is clearly an important part of the city.
