Author Stephen Wolf will tell stories about Central Park — some historical, some fictional — at a special talk on Monday night. Wolf, a professor at Berkeley College, published a book last year called Central Park Love Song. It gives some of the park’s history and explains his own relationship to the park starting in the 1970s. The New York Times called it “the next best thing to being there.”
Wolf’s talk on Monday was organized by the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group, and it will be held at Hostelling International at 891 Amsterdam Avenue (103rd Street).
It starts at 6:30 p.m. and is free and open to all.
