Humble New Yorkers will no doubt take umbrage at the suggestion that solar systems exist where The Park needs a glossary entry. A huge wooded area in the heart of Manhattan, the lungs of the metropolis, the oxygen mask of its inhabitants, a tourist-trap if there ever was one. While New Yorkers and wannabe New Yorkers locomote on roller-skates, tourists take carriage rides, whose first stop is at a water-trough, where the horse is rarely persuaded to drink.
Central Park is a large public, urban park (843 acres or 3.41 kmÂ²; a rectangle 2.5 statute miles by 0.5 statute mile, or 4 km × 800 m) in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. With about twenty-five million visitors annually, Central Park is the most visited city park in the United States, and its appearance in many movies and television shows has made it among the most famous city parks in the world. It is run by the Central Park Conservancy, a private, not-for-profit organization that manages the park under a contract with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Central Park tower is the tallest skyscraper in Western Australia. When completed in 1992 it overtook the Bank West Tower as the tallest building in the city of Perth. The roof of Central Park is 226 meters (741 feet) above the ground and the tip of the spire is 249 meters (817 feet) above the ground.
