When the great cities of North America were being developed, there was little thought to creating "green spaces." Frederick Law Olmsted combined his childhood love for nature with the structured beauty of the great parks of London and Paris to turn a neglected, swampy area into one of the most acclaimed parks in North America: Central Park in New York City. From the Hardcover edition.
