Hi gotwine. The best way to get Central Park depends on where you are coming from, how much time and money you have to spend to get there.

Pepper, I'm not certain that just because an ESTA was approved within seconds "no checks are done at all" as you suggested. An approved ESTA is not a guarantee for entry into the US as has been...
