Aspiring leaf-peepers, as you may already know, there's no need to leave NYC to witness the gorgeous changing colors of the leaves. There are plenty of parks in town, and you can spot rich shades of red, orange, gold, purple and yellow within Central Park's abundant forests.

RECOMMENDED: Fall foliage guide

For a guide, check out the green space's fall foliage map. To develop the free resource, the Central Park Conservancy asked the park's longest-working staffers where they personally prefer to watch the changing leaves, so you may even find a hidden spot you didn't already know about.
