There are so many parts of our iconic Manhattan park that I feel could qualify as my favorite. I think it depends on the time of the year. The Harlem Meer, The Great Lawn, Sheep meadow, Literary Walk… What about the winter in Wollman or Lasker rink for ice skating? Or the center of the park, The Bethesda fountain?
