fort tryon park

today we went to fort tryon park in washington heights after visiting the cloisters. the gardens at fort tryon were the most beautiful i have seen in nyc and were originally designed by frederick law olmsted jr, son of the designer of central park and prospect park and so many great parks across the country.

i first read about olmsted senior in that great book about the chicago world fair of 1893, the devil in the white city.
