NEW YORK -- Central Park offers Manhattanites more than just a place to walk their dogs and throw a frisbee; it's home to countless sports leagues, nature trails and even a zoo, all just a short walk from the hustle and bustle. For homeowners at several of Douglas Elliman Real Estate's newest Manhattan listings, the world's most famous park is never too far away.
Located at the southern tip of the park, 1 Central Park South sits in the iconic Plaza Hotel and Residences.
