Central Park is an oasis of green at the heart of New York City.  Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, it was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964.  Central Park is an idyllic retreat for New Yorkers seeking an escape from the rush of the city.  Joggers, rollerbladers, and bicyclists share meandering walkways with people walking dogs and pushing strollers.  The park is dotted with green lawns, picturesque bridges and terraces, recreational fields, a reservoir, and several smaller bodies of water.  Luxurious townhomes flank Central Park West and 5th Avenue, the two main thoroughfares which border the park to the east and west.  Tourists and students visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, nestled into Central Park's east side, and the Museum of Natural History, which faces the park from the west.  Central Park West ends at Columbus Circle on the southwestern corner of the park.  The residential community of Harlem is to the north.
