7. The Ramble


The Ramble is really the only place in the southern half of Central Park where building-less spots are plentiful. The 36 acres of untamed wilderness, intersected by a tangle of paths, dips down to the edge of the Lake. We took this photo in Tupelo Meadow, one of the only large clearings in the area. The Ramble has a lot of cool secrets hidden in it’s wilderness. Make sure to check out the Ramble Cave (#4 on the Untapped list of top 10 Central Park secrets).

As we ventured closer to the southern end of Central Park, the Midtown skyscrapers became impossible to hide from. If you want to find your own spot hidden away from the city, our recommendation is to look above 65th Street.
