For more than 160 years, Central Park has been the centerpiece of New York City, with more than 43 million visits each year. In this book, Sara Cedar Miller takes readers through America's most popular and celebrated park, where natural and manmade features are interwoven into a spectacular work of art. Since the book was first published in 2009, the Conservancy has completed a number of renovations and opened new areas of the park, including the Hallett Nature Sanctuary, five boat landings, the Obelisk, the Ramble, the Belvedere, Dene Slope, and more. With its pastoral and picturesque landscapes, roads and paths, bridges, buildings, structures, and sculpture, Central Park is a living museum of superb Victorian decorative arts and landscape design.
