Central Park, New York City

Location
New York has larger green spaces, but none is more famous than Central Park, which stretches across nearly 850 acres of prime Manhattan real estate— an oasis for both tourists and locals. 纽约有很大大型绿地,其 中最有名非中央公园莫属。 中央公园位于曼哈顿繁华 地段,占地850英亩(约 3.4平方千米),是游客和 当地人休憩的绿洲。

History
When the terrain for Central Park was bought by the City of New York in 1853, it was faraway from civilization, somewhere between the City of New York and the village Harlem. The area contained sheds from colonists, quarries, pig farms and swamps. In 1857, the city of New York organized a competition for the design of this new park, which had to rival with the great parks in London and Paris. A design by Frederic Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, named 'the Greensward Plan' was chosen.
