There’s a particular spot, or as I like to call it “the Rock,” which overlooks a picturesque view of Wollman Rink, a famous ice rink on the southern part of Central Park, and Time Warner Center, which consists of two well-crafted glass towers on the West Side of New York.

Since high school this has been a place where I can do some quality reading, writing, and reflecting. I wondered about where others like to read and reflect and what made them love those spots. So I asked a few people in the park.
