Once Upon a Time Central Park

Central Park History

As the city was growing so rapidly economically and in population, there was an urgent need of space, a gathering space for the masses of people just to respite, take some fresh air and breaks from a routine life.
Then later in 1848 when this brilliant man, that happens to be running the New York Evening, nowadays known as NY Post, William Brian Cullen wrote an op-ed with an idea, picturing a natural oasis in the middle of city, then a prominent man connected with city
Andrew Jackson Downing, but unfortunately and unexpectedly dies in 1852, that is when the name of Calver Vaux surge along Frederick Law Olmsted, later the contest as the best urban plan, the winning as the better plan, and no better than the “Greensward plan” proposal, a vision that remains and we enjoy nowadays.
