Monday: A Unique Talk About Central Park’s History

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.

      Sounds wonderful.

      Hopefully the Paulson gift of $100MM a couple years ago will restore and maintain, and not change, the Northern part of the park.

      I am a Central Prk lover and the Author of The ABCs of Central Park. I am in the park nearly every day and have been since 1065 when I moved to NYC. I need the park for my sanity and inspiration. I’ll certainly be there.
