Named for the statue of its primary
resident, the Pilgrim, this knoll descends
gently downward toward the Central Park Conservatory Water and is a favorite
space for those who enjoy the serenity
of a hillside setting.
There with the distant
white sails of small boats streaking across
the water, they can throw down a blanket
or lean against a tree and contemplate
the view or they can just read and relax.
With its proximity to Fifth Avenue and
72nd Street dog owners and dog walkers
are frequent visitors to this spot.
