The Victorian age park is located between Eighth Street and Ninth Street and Hamilton Place on the west and McWilliams Place on the East.

“One of the park’s best-kept secrets. Open the iron gate, made in Paris in 1894, on Fifth Avenue and 104th Street, and be transported to Italy, France, and England by way of the Central Park Conservatory Gardens. Comprising three gardens with distinct styles—Italian (tiered hedges and a 12-foot-high jet fountain), French (Walter Schott’s romantic Three Dancing Maidens sculpture), and English (shrubs and perennial plants)—this attraction brings a piece of Europe to the U.S”
