The Quietest Place in Central Park

I've tried to determine the quietest place in Central Park, which I think is in the northwest corner, about a block east of 103rd St and Central Park West in a hilly, wooded section. I hadn't thought of this question in terms of time, but on Christmas night almost the entire park was silent, with a heavy snowfall continuing late into the night. The Pinetum was magical, which I just discovered is by design...Evergreens played an important role in the original design of the Park. Olmsted and Vaux created a "Winter Drive" along the western carriage road from 102nd to 72nd Streets. Groupings of pines, spruces, and firs added color to the winter landscape and provided a backdrop for deciduous shrubs and oak, ash, and maple trees.
