Visitors looking for a place to explore in Central Park are in for a treat when they visit the North Woods. From the serenity of the waterfall at The Ravine to the beauty of the wildflower meadow the many trails weaving through the North Woods will keep nature lovers and hikers busy for hours.
And if you’re lucky, you might spot a Wood Nymph!
Wood Nymphs, the magical spirits of Greek mythology have populated the wooded areas of Central Park as far back as anyone can remember. Many believed they immigrated to the United States in the early 19th century after Greece outlawed frolicking.
The Central Park Wood Nymphs are sometimes seen dancing and singing along the babbling waters of the Loch. Though they are versed in many songs of love from ancient Greece, most prefer to sing contemporary music from the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Katy Perry. These Nymphs are not popular.
Greek scholars have labored for years to identify these shy and elusive beauties. The list of the few identified Nymphs living in Central Park are as follows:
Florentine – Known for her love of green plants and pasta dishes.
Electrolyte – Purveyor of replenishing fluids.
Ohemgee – Goddess of texting and instant messaging.
Stephanee – Originally thought to be a nymph, but was later identified as a hippie girl from New Hampshire illegally camping in the park.
Amorous males venturing in the park hoping for a little romantic romp with Wood Nymphs are advised not to pursue this activity. Central Park Wood Nymphs, like most Upper East Side women are accustomed to a certain kind of lifestyle. Investment bankers and lawyers with an Am Ex Black card are encouraged to give it a shot.
