All these spots are in Central Park and taking pictures there is a must. In order to organize yourself and the photographers we need a convenient transportation. A drop-on drop-off trip that will take you around the whole Park and let you pick up the best photo spots.
Wed in Central Park recommends using a pedicab carriage ride to take you to all these lovely places. We can recommend a company that provides professional Central Park tours and transportation within the Central Park area. Since cars are not allowed everywhere in the Park the rickshaw hop-on hop-off option is the best travel experience we can deliver. A trained tour guide will take you around the whole Park. You will have tons of pictures and a lot of fun during the trip.
You can visit the Central Park Bike Tours website for more information about the pedicab trips in Central Park.
