About the event

The History of Central Park Three-Part Webinar

What is the most visited urban park in the country? New York’s Central Park! In this three-part series, I'll cover how the city’s early 19th century elite called for a new large park in Manhattan— “to serve as a ventilator to a densely populated city,” how it became the country’s model for the urban park, and today’s beautiful and functional destination for New York’s residents and tourists, alike.
