Central Park

Central Park is the signature attraction that helps make New York the most special city in the world. A walk in any season through the lush landscaping and varied terrain shows ever changing and beautiful panoramas. The lakes and ponds, bridle paths and castle, fountains and ice skating rinks - create a world of nature and pleasure unequaled in any other metropolis.

Jog around the sparkling waters of the reservoir or stroll the endless footpaths of the Ramble. Enjoy playing fields for sports, professionally tended tennis courts, a carousel and playgrounds for children of all ages. Relax in Sheep's Meadow or on the Great Lawn, dine at the Boathouse and row on the serene waters of The Lake. The sheer variety of greenery, entertainment and fellow citizens makes Central Park the foremost attraction for residents and visitors. Four Urbana rental residences directly face Central Park and two others are just short steps away.

Arts & Culture

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, virtually at your doorstep, provides endless opportunities to visit the world’s greatest art collections. Joining the Met on Upper Fifth Avenue are The Frick Museum, The Neue Gallerie, The Guggenheim and the Cooper Hewitt.

Almost every night provides another opportunity to attend a performance of some of the world’s greatest actors and musicians. The stages of Carnegie Hall have hosted legendary concerts for more than a century. Renowned opera, ballet, theater and classical music flourish at Lincoln Center, while jazz greats perform regularly at The Time Warner Center overlooking the Park.
