"Not too eventful as far as Central Park goes."

Frawley Circle is on the northeast corner of Central Park. Of all the "circles" around Central Park, this one isn't even close to the most aesthetically pleasing one. There's too much of a cross section of 110th in the circle and the neighborhood right here isn't exactly what you'd want in a coffee table book, visually. I've only been here once because I'm just not a huge fan of Harlem and I live in the West Village so this is quite a hike. There's a cool statue of Duke Ellington in the circle but other than that, there's really not much to see or do. You have to go further into the park, in my opinion, for the really beautiful parts. Park is better than no park, but this is kind of a road that's attached to some green, in my opinion. And, the surrounding streets are so loud that you can't really enjoy Central Park from right here.
