Book of the Week - "Central Park, an American Masterpiece"

Central Park, America's first public park, is a paragon of 19-century landscape design and one of the world's great urban spaces. This week we picked an illustrated history that celebrates the splendor and significance of this natural treasure. Readers are led from the gates at Grand Army Plaza, along the Mall and its formal alee of elms, to the heart of the park, Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, whose iconography is explored in detail.
