The entrance to Central Park is blocked off at 59th Street in New York on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012. All city parks are closed indefinitely pending damage assessment from superstorm Sandy. The Central Park Conservancy said at least 250 mature trees were felled by the storm, with benches and playgrounds damaged as well.
