Geocache Description:

Listed coordinates are for the "Strangers' Gate." One of 20 gated entrances to Central Park. Each gate was named by Olmsted and Vaux, the park's designers, for the type of person they anticipated entering the park from that area. The cache is not there, but is a short walk away.

The Strangers' Gate, one of the best names in NYC. I wonder who they were expecting here? I do know that if there was a faerie market in the city it would be here, but like anything that comes from a faerie market this puzzle may not be what it first appears.

Everything that you need to solve the puzzle is on this page somewhere, just remember: It doesn't begin at the beginning, it begins at The Strangers' Gate.
