"Scenic Views at Every Bend in the Path" Central Park Tip by nicolaitan
Central Park, New York City: 406 reviews and 745 photos
When Olmstead and Vaux designed Central Park, it was no more than an undesirable area of swamps with lots of large rocks. New York City proper extended only to 34th Street and this area was occupied by squatters, a small town of freed slaves, and little else. There were no buildings surrounding the park as there are today. Yet the brilliance of their design is even more obvious today, both in the remarkable views of the park with the background of the tall city buildings and in the beauty of the landscaping at every turn. Flower beds are replanted with the seasons under the guidance of the Conservancy - keep your eyes open - beauty is everywhere.
