I had the opportunity to visit this great city in 1982 and 1989. Both times I was in a hurry and got to see only a few places. I did have the chance to visit the Central Park and managed to snap a few pictures. I am going to have to look for them so I can post them here but in the mean time you are invited to show off yours.
