Central Park, An American Masterpiece
Sara Cedar Miller
Although ten years have passed since the publication of this wonderful, extremely comprehensive, beautifully illustrated book about Central Park, none of the many books about the park which have been written in the interim can hold a candle to it. The historical background of the creation of the park, combined with the individual descriptions of each and every corner of the park, are mesmerizing. It’s more of a coffee table book, than a handy little guide book that can be carried in one’s back pocket. Well suited to a comfy read in front of the fireplace on a Sunday afternoon. It also makes a wonderful gift. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
