When you live in the no-fee rentals in NYC at ARO, you’re practically neighbors with Central Park. Beyond the exquisite interiors and views from your window, you have an exclusive pass to the famously chill vibe at Sheep Meadow, just minutes away.
A Glimpse of Central Park
In the middle of New York’s hustle and bustle, Central Park stands out as a breath of fresh air. It’s a playground of options: You could hang out at the Bethesda Terrace, wave to the animals at the Central Park Zoo, or rent a rowboat at the Loeb Boathouse and spend an afternoon luxuriating on the Lake. But when the sun’s out, Sheep Meadow beckons.
Covering 15 acres of Central Park, Sheep Meadow is more than just a patch of grass; it’s your ticket to a relaxing day. With Manhattan’s buildings framing the horizon, this spot is equally loved by locals and tourists. Lie back, picnic, play spikeball, or just people-watch — it’s your call.
Nailing Your Picnic Game
Various nooks of Central Park boast a wealth of history, and Sheep Meadow is no exception. The spot takes its name from the flock of Southdown and Dorset sheep that were kept on the meadow from 1864 until 1934. Not only was it believed that the sheep enhanced the romantic English quality of the park, but the animals also trimmed the grass and fertilized the lawns.
Though there are no sheep within the meadow today (sadly!), it is still a fantastic spot to have a picnic and spend the day.
