When you live in these luxury, no-fee apartments in Manhattan, you’re not just treated to gorgeous skyline views. You are ideally placed to enjoy the best of everything the city has to offer. But for a truly quintessential New York experience, you have to revel in a bit of nature. For that, New Yorkers agree that nothing is better than spending an idyllic fall day at Sheep Meadow in Central Park. Like many of New York’s greatest pleasures, it’s just a short distance from your door at ARO.
Since the early 1900s, New Yorkers have been flocking to this beloved, 15-acre green space in the heart of the city. The entrance is located on West 66th Street, just 16 minutes from ARO. On your way there, you’ll have plenty of time to impress your friends with intriguing park facts, such as the origin of the meadow’s name. (Yes, you could once find sheep there. And when the sheep were off duty, they lived in the same building that is now Tavern on the Green.) This is one of the few places in Manhattan where you can truly spread out, so make sure to bring a blanket and enjoy the fall foliage.
Of course, it would hardly be a picnic in Central Park without some snacks. While you’re sure to find the usual hot dog and ice cream carts sprinkled throughout the park, there is something special about packing your own bag. At Gastro Market, located on Broadway and 55th Street, you can fill your basket with plenty of fruits, veggies, and other fresh and tasty treats before you continue your journey. If you’re more in the mood for pastries or a quick grab-and-go sandwich, Breads Bakery will get you out the door in a hurry.
When you’re living in the heart of New York City, even a simple stroll through the park feels like a celebration! So, take advantage of these gorgeous crisp fall days, and visit this pastoral masterpiece — just blocks from the no-fee rentals at ARO. Looking to make the move to Midtown West?
