Discover the forts of Central Park on a virtual tour of the park’s lesser-traveled North End tomorrow! So far removed from Midtown and the more heavily-visited areas of the park, the North End possesses an enchanting mystique all its own. On this tour, guests will take a virtual walk with licensed New York City tour guide and former Central Park Conservancy guide, Beth Goffe.

On this scenic, virtual, stroll through the park, you will learn about the historic events that occurred in the area throughout three separate centuries. See where encampments from two wars were situated and, during a third, the former convent where injured soldiers were treated. Explore a memorial to the “father of New York City” and learn about the geography that distinguishes the North End from the park’s southern section. The beauty and unusual history of the North End and the forts of Central Park make this mysterious section of the famous and beloved park a truly special place to explore!
