MIDTOWN WEST. This is the largest illuminated park in the world and the site of the first World’s Fair (1853-54). Midtown workers have found this park, with its gravel paths and movable green iron chairs, to be a great lunch spot. The park draws thousands of visitors daily during the warmer months; at various times of the year, the park features free film and music festivals, fashion shows, a holiday market and a pride celebration. One of the nation’s most successful restaurants is onsite, as well as food kiosks servicing park patrons and the streets surrounding the park.
