Landmarks / History:
The idea for Central Park was initially proposed in the early 1800s, though construction didn’t begin until the late 1850s, based on a design by the famous writer Frederick Law Olmstead and English architect Calvert Vaux. By the time of its completion in 1873, more than ten million cartloads of earth and other materials had been brought in to landscape the park. More than four million trees, shrubs and plants were planted. Following its completion, the park quickly fell into neglect, due to poor management by Tammany Hall politicians. In the 1930s, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia initiated a major effort to revitalize the park, which went on to be very successful. The park began to host large-scale events in the 1960s, but without proper maintenance and management, it began to fall into disrepair, trampled by crowds. By the 1970s it was riddled by dust storms and unsafe at night. During the 1980s, the Central Park Conservancy ushered in a second renaissance, restoring the park to health and vitality. Central Park’s renewed vibrancy continues today.
