Create a New Central Park
As the population of New York City grew in the 1850s, open spaces began to disappear on the dense street grid. Investigate Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux’s plan for a grand public space called Central Park in Port City, 1609-1898. Then put on your urban planner hat and design your own version of Central Park.
