A Walk in the Park: A guided historical stroll through NYC’s iconic Central Park” 

Tues June 22 & Wed June 23 –  1-3 pm with 15-20 people per walk. Offered on two days to accommodate as many participants as possible.

 Michael Miscione, former Manhattan Borough Historian, will return with a follow up to his extremely successful appearance in our programming to recount the origin, design process, and construction of New York City’s Central Park. He will acquaint us with the gifted team of landscape architects, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who conceived the park's famous Greensward Plan, and the shrewd but forgotten administrator, Andrew H. Green, who steered the project through hostile political waters, financial downturns, and the Civil War.
