Harlem Mere is a body of water sitting in the northeast
corner of the park just north of Lasker Rink. This was formerly
a marshy area surrounding Harlem Creek, which flowed east
into the East River under what is now 105th Street.
The two 35-story octagonal buildings overlooking the Mere from the
northeast corner of the park are Schomburg Plaza, constructed in 1975.
A gentrification-special built in 2006-2007 at
111 Central Park North also looks down on the mere.
