New Yorkers have long desired to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Their first chance came in 1838 when Green-Wood opened far off in the city of Brooklyn, and quickly became a major tourist destination. Twenty years later came Central Park, designed by masterminds Olmsted and Vaux, which offered its own unique landscape and recreational experiences.

But what is the relationship between Green-Wood and Central Park? The Cemetery was, in many ways, the inspiration and model for the park. Central Park Conservancy Historian Marie Warsh joins Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman to talk about these two iconic New York landmarks, which share design elements, common artisans, and more.

This conversation is part of Green-Wood Cemetery's series of virtual programs about the history of Green-Wood and its permanent residents, Zooming in on History.
