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

Wed June 23 – timing tentatively 1-3 pm with 15-20 people per walk. Meet at 12:45 PM at the SE Fountain at Columbus Circle


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.
