A body was discovered in a lake in Central Park Thursday — the second time in a month a corpse has surfaced in one of the iconic park’s bodies of water, officials said.

A passerby spotted the body floating in the Harlem Meer on the northern end of the park at about 11 a.m., according to police. The NYPD responded and pulled the body ashore.

Police have yet to identify the victim.

An autopsy has been slated to determine how the victim died.
