"All the kids are doing it"

Central Park Driveway is a beautiful and convenient way into two of my favorite parts of the park. It's on the east side of the park just of the 79th street transverse and it takes you to both the Sheep's Meadow and the concert stage. I have been to at least two shows every summer at the Central Park Summer Stage and it never gets old. Some of the shows are free and some are not free but pretty cheap. The lines are pretty long but it's not too shabby of scenery for a long wait in the afternoon so you can't complain much. I highly recommend everyone see a show here (the Philharmonic at least) and Central Park Driveway is the easiest way to get there.
The Sheep's Meadow used to be an actual sheep's meadow and now it's just for grazing people. It's unadulterated by trees so people come here to soak up the sun, play hand ball, and people watch. It's like a massive picnic with a bunch of people you don't know every weekend and it's pretty fun.
You can use a lot of roads through the park to get around, and, you don't even need one if you're on foot. But, Central Park Driveway makes getting to the goods quick and easy -- I've gotten lost a lot from veering off this road and it's a really big park to find yourself lost in.
