English: Harlem Meer ("Meer" is Dutch for "Lake") occupies the northeast corner of New York City's Central Park, in a section of park that was added to the original site, which had originally ended at 106th Street. It lies north of the Conservatory Garden, with a meandering and diverse shoreline that wraps around the bluff that contains the Blockhouse, the remains of gun emplacements erected for the War of 1812, which never saw action. Today Harlem Meer is reduced to and 1.2 kilometers (3/4 mile) circumference by the construction of Lasker Rink and Pool, for summer swimming and winter ice-skating, over its westernmost end.
