THE BEST ACTUAL MAP OF THE PARK
Discover Central Park is built around an impeccably researched, geographically accurate map of the park, designed expressly for the purpose of discovering the park on foot. Containing literally hundreds of points of interest and historical footnotes, this is by far the most complete map of individual paths in Central Park; it is not just a repurposed google-maps map with little detail on the actual map, like that found in some competitors' products. Also includes a 'find me' feature to locate your self on the map.
General app description:
Discover Central Park - a beautifully-rendered, interactive map of New York's Central Park, containing most major landmarks, paths and roads. Bordering streets and subway stops are also indicated, as well as park activities such as boat and bike rental locations. You may tap on points of interest directly on the map to get more information, or select them from a list of more than a hundred sites to be shown their location in park. Discover Strawberry Fields, Sheep's Meadow, Bethesda Fountain, Summit Rock, Shakespeare Garden, Belvedere Castle, the Zoo and countless other NYC favorites for the first time, or for the 100th!
Need to find the nearest bathroom? Central Park NYC includes the locations of all public restrooms in the park.
Want some background information on that statue you are looking at? Most points of interest are augmented with information from Wikipedia and other public resources. Just tap on the map!
Feeling lost? Owners of 3G iPhones and iPads can hit the 'find me' button and Central Park will show you exactly where you are in the park.
(For 1st gen iPhones and iPods, as well as WIFI iPads, your general location will be indicated as closely as the available data allows, but this can be quite erratic in the park as there is very little positioning info to go on without GPS!)
