Description: Forty-eight years after the 1811 Commissioners' Plan mapped out the grid of Manhattan, a grand park opened in the heart of the island. You will examine original historical sources to see how Central Park was transformed over a century and a half by reformers, planners, and public officials and then create your own guide that can be used during a visit to the park, right across the street from the museum.
