About the Book

After ceding control of Central Park to their detractors, Vaux and Olmsted created their own park...the Brooklyn Park. First they built the Plaza and defined its axis. The axis is the essential element in America's most historic visual corridor. As a work-in- progress, this corridor would, in time, beautifully evoke their concern of an emerging European-style, wealth-based privileged class.

Includes 12 full-page color images of the View from the Brooklyn Mirador.
