Before Central Park with Historian Sara Cedar Miller

May 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Please join us for this live webinar on Tuesday, May 3rd at 7:00 PM EST.

With over eight hundred sprawling acres in the middle of one of the world’s densest cities, Central Park is not only an oasis of calm and greenery, but an urban masterpiece. Designed in the mid-1800s by the landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, it is a model for city parks worldwide. But what existed in the area before it became an iconic urban park? Join us as we welcome Sara Cedar Miller, historian emerita of the Central Park Conservancy, for an illuminating talk on the two and a half centuries of history that predated the creation of Central Park.
