Manhattan Personal Injury Law Firm | Representation in Central Park South

An unexpected injury can turn your whole world upside down. The pain, suffering, and emotional distress are likely to take an enormous toll on your life, affecting everything from your income to your relationships and your peace of mind.

Personal injury law in the State of New York recognizes the real value of those losses. That’s why victims who are injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness are allowed to recover money and benefits

Unfortunately, defendants (usually insurance companies) fight hard to reduce the amount of money and benefits they pay to the greatest extent possible. That’s why New Yorkers need an experienced and compassionate attorney to fight with them, side by side.

Central Park South: A Complicated Term for a Wonderful Area

Central Park itself is so vast and regionalized that one really needs a map and a lexicon to talk about the place. At well over one hundred years old, it is one of the largest parks in the world, certainly the most visited, and by far the most frequently filmed park on the planet.

But Central Park South is so much more than just “the bottom part of the park” that tourists might assume it to be. Rather, it is a bustling little slice of Manhattan, filled with landmarks, commercial enterprises, and first-rate pastimes.

Specifically, Central Park South refers to one portion of 59th Street in Manhattan, running from Fifth Avenue (at Columbus Circle) to Eighth Avenue (at Grand Army Plaza). It’s the same stretch of road that gives Central Park its southernmost border, hence the area’s name.

Among the world-famous and historical sites you’ll see here are:

  • The Plaza Hotel
  • The Ritz-Carlton
  • General Motors Building
  • Sherry Netherlands Hotel
  • Trump International Hotel and Tower
  • Time Warner Center
  • Bloomberg World Headquarters
  • Hudson River Park
  • The Off-Broadway 59E59 Theaters
  • Roosevelt Island Tramway
  • IRT Powerhouse
  • 2 Columbus Circle
  • St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center
  • The Roosevelt Island Tramway

…And of course, Central Park itself, which boasts The Pond and Hallett Nature Sanctuary among its southernmost offerings.

So even though “Central Park South” is truly local jargon, the area stands tall as one of New York’s most famous half miles.
