I’d be more worried about the smell of Central park than the mosquitos. Maybe it’s just the Minnesotan in me that is spoiled by beautiful parks and lakes, but I thought Central Park was pretty stinky.

You can always bring your own mosquito solution: there are propane powered bug zappers you can buy that are incredibly effective!

I went to an August wedding at the Boat House and it was beautiful and bug-free.  I think it’s an absolutely wonderful location and very New York!

Lavender essential oil will keep the mosquitos away.  That may be nicer than citronella.  The lake near the boathouse doesn’t seem stagnant, so wouldn’t worry too much.  Plus doesn’t the city usually spray mosquitos on bad years?


To ILikePink- central park is actually very beautiful and does not smell.

@ILikePink- I don’t think it smells! Now, the street near my subway station, THAT’S stinky. If you smelled something bad, maybe you just ended up there on a bad day, or I guess it’s possible that you just have a really sensitive nose lol.
