  • The Park and the People A History of Central Park by Roy Rosenzweig and Elizabeth Blackmar

    This is a 5 page paper reviewing Roy Rosenzweig and Elizabeth Blackmar’s book, “The Park and the People: A History of Central Park”. Roy Rosenzweig and Elizabeth Blackmar’s “The Park and the People: A History of Central Park” (1992, 1998) aptly chronicles the history of New York’s Central Park and the people who created it. Perhaps one of the most important aspects of the book is the highlighting of those who created, designed, and controlled the park and how it was adopted by the elite and the working class citizens of New York through its growing concept of a ‘public park’. Despite the influences of the elite gentlemen and designers who were inspired by the great city parks of Europe, Central Park was quickly adopted by the working classes from those who labored during the construction of the park to those who were settlers in the area. The concept of “public park” and the query of “whose park is it anyway” continues to be of great importance in present day New York as does the importance of the people who play a role in the continued popularity of the park. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Whereas the focus of the Middle Ages and the source of all knowledge had been in theology, the study of humanity was the focus of the Renaissance. Theological matters still were of great importance, but they were expressed in different terms. During the Renaissance, beauty came to be acceptable in its own right. Italian Renaissance architecture follows this progression of thought throughout the Renaissance period. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
