Central Park
Arguably one of the most famous parks in the world, Central Park is a manmade wonder. Set in the middle of bustling Manhattan, its grounds serve as a safe haven, not only for athletes, daydreamers, musicians, and strollers, but also for teems of migratory birds each year.

Pass By:  
Bethesda Fountain
Bethesda Fountain rises high above Bethesda Terrace, looking over the hundreds of visitors that come every day to enjoy the view of the Lake and relax at the “heart” of the Central Park. The sculpture that tops it, Angel of the Waters, was designed by Emma Stebbins in 1873 and is one of the most recognizable icons in the entire park.
Pass By:  
Bow Bridge
The first cast-iron bridge in the Park (and the second oldest in America), the bridge was built between 1859 and 1862. Bow Bridge is named for its graceful shape, reminiscent of the bow of an archer or violinist. ... Today, Bow Bridge is one of New York's most romantic settings and a muse for photographers.
Stop At:  
The Ramble
The Ramble is a 36-acre "wild garden." Central Park's designers imagined a tranquil spot where visitors could stroll, discover forest gardens rich with plantings, and meander along the paths. This truly is a place for the urban explorer to escape the city and get utterly lost in nature.
Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At:  
Ladies Pavilion
Central Park's Ladies Pavilion is a secluded spot located near 75th Street on the west side of the park, next to The Lake. The Pavilion's antique-style construction, location, and beauty have made it one of the most sought-after park locations for special events, especially weddings ceremonies, and photo shoots. The Pavilion is made from cast iron, slate, wood, and stone and is situated on The Lake at Hernshead, a rock structure that resembles the shape of a heron. The Pavilion's floor is made from Manhattan schist coping stones that had originally been part of another Central Park structure.

This tranquil section of Central Park was named after one of Lennon's favorite songs, "Strawberry Fields Forever."
Stop At:  
Upper West Side
Nestled between Riverside and Central Park, the Upper West Side is one of the greenest parts of Manhattan.

Marc Samuels was great! Excellent tour guide, and our pictures are beautiful! I highly recommend Marc!
, Jan 2019
Taking the 2-hour "Private Central Park Walking Tour with a Personal Photographer"a was one of the best decisions we made on this trup. Personal Photographer Marc was not only a great guide - very accommodating and sharing lots of info about the various areas we visited - but he was an even greater photographer who made sure there were no photobombers and had quite an eye for detail. We had a fun tour and more importantly we had lots of great photo memories to keep and cherish.

The best thing we've booked in a long time. Kennedy was a fantastic tour guide and photographer. We got our photos the next morning and they are everything we hoped they'd be and more! We ended up with more than 100 photos. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting New York City!

We were in NYC for our honeymoon and the tour was fantastic. We booked it for our very first morning in the city and would recommend it to anyone. Marc took some beautiful photos that we will treasure all our lives, and made us so much more comfortable in the city for the rest of our trip. Bargain.
