Harlem Meer

harlem-meer_535×235.jpg

The Harlem Meer in 10029 offers an idyllic respite from the freneticism of city life. Occupying 11 acres in the north east corner of central park, the meer (Dutch for lake) is said to be one of the loveliest in the city. New Yorkers and tourists can relax on the shores of its miniature sandy beach, take part in family activities at the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center, enjoy catch and release fishing, or just sit among the impressive oak, cypress and beech trees surrounding the lake.

106th to 110th Street on the East side of Central Park, 10029
