Right, and other people might be going by a different rubric or criteria. You included them, others might not. What part of that is hard to understand?

Your gym sounds ghetto. And I don't care how your friends would play with your throat for referring to it as a "sports facility" so please keep your personal revelations to yourself. This is not your crappy $10.99 a month gym. At my gym in Manhattan, we have gyms with soccer, a full sized hockey rink, tennis, football, golf, endurance training, bowling, lighthouse, boating, sky rinks, spas, etc.

It's more than likely out of your budget anyway so I don't blame you for your unfamiliarity.

GG Park is outstanding for people watching too, you have the crackheads/hippies on the haight side, the yuppies on the sunset side, etc...and just interesting characters all over the park.

GG Park also feels like an "urban escape", especially coming from the Haight/Ashbury area...

On Central Park North, south of Harlem you have the crazy crackheads and below that you have the tourists, nannies pushing wealthy Manhattan children in their strollers and then posh men & women taking a walk in their "backyards" in the evenings when the tourists and Bridge & Tunnel crowd finally empty out the place. Not to mention you have beautiful upscale buildings, world class shops and architectural gems surrounding the park. It's also so so beautiful after snowfall. Tavern on the Green restaurant in the park is also fab, as is all the world class museums.

I just love Central Park. I love the feeling of being so disconnected to the heart of a bustling city, but knowing you're still in the heart of a bustling city and everything is just a stone throws away.

That's nice and all but Golden Gate Park is not as good as Central Park.

Its different, it has a lot that Central Park doesnt have, and vice versa...IMO, the two best urban parks in the country, and 3rd is very far behind.

Especially if its blistering, freezing cold or muggy like a sauna or a swamp, or a oven-who wants to excercise in that??

YUCK.
