"Cut through the park"
Center Drive is what 6th Avenue turns into once you enter Central Park. You can't live here (or anywhere in the park for that matter), but it's an easy drive street if you need to get through the park by car for some reason. Center Drive takes you through the Bolivar Plaza entrance to the park. There are a lot of statues Latin American liberators right around here. I don't know who any of these people are, but the statues are pretty. There's also a little treehouse looking thing on the east side of center drive. There really all kinds of surprises in this park, so driving through it isn't the best way to see it. But, if, for example, you have to get to the north side of the park, this is probably the best way to go to get into the meat of the park. However, on a nice day, traffic can be a nightmare on this street. There are so many pedestrians and bikers, etc and there are only two lanes so there's no way around all the people. And, cabs whizz down this street so if you are a biker or walker, be careful.
