Even though it's known to be part of Central Park where men "hook up", I wanted to take my boyfriend there because it feels completely secluded, like you're in a sanctuary deep within a forest without a compass. The only times I'd found it before were when I wasn't looking for it, so of course our trek wasn't successful. Finding huge rocks instead, with a secluded alcove near the water, was serendipitous. I wasn't thrilled, though, when upon leaving, I saw that another couple had discovered this "secret" spot and had been 10 feet away from us the entire time.
