Central Park is an urban park mentioned in the notes found in the desk of a New York advertising executive as a location that President Lyndon Johnson could use as an excuse to travel to New York City, where he would just happen to run into the visiting pope (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies; 30).


Central Park is in the central part of the borough of Manhattan.  It initially opened in 1857, on 778 acres of city-owned land, later expanding to its current size of 843 acres[1].
