Bite the Big Apple in Central Park North

Central Park North marks the boundary between the world's most iconic urban park and the colorful, cosmopolitan district of Harlem. Pick a Central Park North vacation rental for your next getaway and you'll have the myriad sights of magical Manhattan within easy reach. Multicultural Harlem is a gourmand's paradise, with Southern-style soul food, lip-smacking BBQ and fiery West African curries all on offer in abundance. Meanwhile, Central Park is enchanting at all times of year, whether you're taking a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the winter snow or catching an open-air concert at the sultry height of summer. And you're just a short subway ride away from the neon-soaked sensory overload of Times Square or the glittering high-rise skyline of Downtown.

Come sunshine or snow, the park's the place to be

Secure yourself a Central Park North vacation rental and you'll have New York's lush, sprawling playground literally on your doorstep. If it's warm outside, nothing beats splashing around on the shimmering lake. Rent your own paddle boat or splash out on a romantic Venetian gondola ride. To cap off an unforgettable summer day, head to the Delacorte open-air theater, home of the world-renowned Shakespeare in the Park initiative, and marvel at some star-studded classic drama as the sun sets. If on the other hand you're visiting during chillier times, warm yourself up with a spot of ice skating or a snowball fight as you marvel at the surrounding skyscrapers.

Manhattan's mind-blowing museums

Before you set off exploring New York's blockbuster cultural attractions, swing by the Museum of the City of New York, an under-the-radar gem just a short walk from Central Park North. Within this handsome red-brick mansion you can peruse exhibits devoted to diverse aspects of life in the Big Apple, from political activism to silversmithing. A leisurely stroll south through the park will take you to the legendary Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the world's biggest and most-visited museums. With a vast, centuries-spanning collection of art and antiquities from every corner of the globe, it's easy to get overwhelmed, so start with must-sees like the ancient Egyptian Temple of Dendur and King Henry VIII's armor.
