Wien Walk: E60-63
Wien Walk is the main pathway leading from Scholars' Gate at the Grand Army Plaza
to the Central Park Wildlife Center.
The Walk is dedicated in memory to New York philanthropist Lawrence A. Wien. His home once overlooked what is now Wien Walk when he resided at 785 Fifth Avenue.
It is probably the most traveled walkway in the Park with attractions for Park visitors that make it seem more like midway of an amusement park.
Artists sit along the perimeter inviting anyone that passes to have a likeness of themselves drawn for a fee. Clowns sell balloons and artists paint the faces of children.
