I have to say that I don't like Manhattan's Central Park much.

It has a strange feeling of being artificial. While that's true for human-created parks in general, CP has some Disneyish amusement park touch to it that I don't like.

It especially sucked that they've thrown people out the park after sun dropped.

Well, for the sake of drug dealing prevention...

Agreed. It really takes the pleasant experience out of a nice city park to have to cross a busy street and dodge cars to get to the other side of the park.

Which disney-ish elements are you referring to? I agree about the artificial feeling. It's a well designed park. Maybe it just feels Disney-ish due to many tourists?

Have you been to Prospect Park? That one feels less artificial since it feels more neglected and not as well maintained.
