Today the park has been memorialized in songs, poetry, Broadway plays, and the movies. It is the city’s most scenic and beloved landmark. Photographer Laurie A. Watters has poignantly captured its splendor and diversity. Here is a year in Central Park – a celebration of the eight hundred forty-three acre oasis that has survived, against all odds, in the heart of the powerful metropolis Manhattan. Included is a short history of Central Park.” Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 3 lbs 12 oz. Category: Countries & Travel; Photography. ISBN: 0847815773. Inventory No: 007989.
