Harlem Meer to get $3M in Upgrades
The iconic Harlem Meer and the deteriorating playground on its shore are getting a major facelift that will improve the experience for visitors to the northern tip of Central Park.
Beginning in September, the north shoreline of the meandering, man-made lake will be expanded and its steeply sloping pathways rebuilt with new landscaping and a gentler grade to increase access for strollers and wheelchairs.
