NY has a lot of parks. The most famous and the largest is Central Park, lying in the centre of Manhattan.

Horses pull carriages through the Park. However, it is dangerous to go after dark.
There are thousands of restaurants in NY. They serve every kind of food in the world. I personally have visited NY 5 times already and it is a wonderful place but it is more of a tourist city than a place to live in.
