Eighty years after it was shut off to the world, New York has reopened a secret woodland sanctuary a stone's throw from Fifth Avenue, just in time for summer. The 1.6 hectare Hallett Nature Sanctuary is one of three areas of woodland in Central Park, the huge expanse of nature in the Big Apple visited each year by an astonishing 43 million people.There are around 270 species of bird in Central Park.On sunny weekends as many as 200,000 people can flood into Central Park as a whole to relax or exercise.The park's annual budget is $65 million, of which 25 percent is financed by City Hall and the rest raised by the Central Park Conservacy thanks to donations from park lovers and well-heeled residents living close by.
