Quick Peek at the History of Central Park
Central Park is modeled after the public grounds of London and Paris. The first public park created in the United States in 1853 began its process three years prior. State legislatures authorized New York City to acquire 700 acres by eminent domain the irregular terrain between Fifth and Eighth avenues and 59th and 106th streets. The park was extended to 110th Street in 1863 to bring the park to 843 acres in size. The land was not conducive for private development and the wealthy merchants and landowners who supported the project wanted an attractive setting to ride in their carriages. It was also a place to provide the working-class with an alternative to going to saloons.
“Autumn is a beautiful time of year in the city, and I love visiting the park during this season. The oranges and reds created by nature are so vibrant and beautiful. These colors, imposed over the canvas like a backdrop of the city, create a breathtaking setting… one that is further enhanced with the sweet aroma of warm honey-roasted nuts wafting through the evening chill. Central Park is truly a magical place where nature and the character of New York combine in serene harmony. It’s a place where a quick cab ride lets you escape the big city and immerse yourself in nature’s brilliant color palette. True to New York form, there is no place quite like Central Park in the fall.” – Thomas Kinkade
