New York Central Park Navigation Trick Lost

Did you ever get lost in New York’s gorgeous Central Park?

Regardless of whether you’re a New Yorker or a tourist, the following trick should help you instantly find your way out of Central Park and back into the massive city.

A new video that relates some of the history of the park also reveals that each lamppost in the park actually tells you your location. On each pole, you’ll find a series of numbers that tell you what street you’re on, and whether you’re closer to the West Side or East Side.

The first two numbers on the pole in the picture above will tell you the street number. The second numbers will indicate whether you’re closer to the West (odd) or East Side (even).

Check out Business Insider’s full video on New York’s Central Park below.
