Listen to Alec Baldwin while hanging out on the Great Lawn

Just in time for summer, as you explore Central Park you use your cell phone to hear more about your favorite spots. I just read about the Central Park Conservatory's newest project in the today's NY Times and immediately tested the Jerry Seinfeld recording for my favorite spot, the Mall.

Now we can all listen to Jerry Seinfeld talk about the Mall, Julia Louis-Dreyfus while on the Bow Bridge, Alec Baldwin on the Great Lawn, Sarah Jessica Parker at the Pond, and Candace Bergen while visiting the Conservatory Garden. Perhaps you'd prefer to hear about Strawberry Fields from Yoko Ono?
