Hotel Five44

In our last blog, we began discussing Central Park and the fascinating facts behind one of New York City’s greatest monuments; and today, we’ll be continuing our blog stream. So without further ado – and as presented by Hotel Five44 (your local New York City hotel) – here are facts you may not have known about Central Park:

Sculptures Abound

New York City’s Central Park is home to numerous sculptures – most of which have been donated over the park’s lifespan. Included in the litany of some two dozen or more sculptures are sculptures of poets and artists, as well as a rendition of Duke Ellington, Balto (a famous sled dog with an epic tail), and Alice in Wonderland. Most sculptures are located in a section of the park called the Literary Walk.

Planning and Execution

As a manmade park, Central Park was designed and implemented over about a fifteen year span. Central Park was installed as an expansion on a smaller park, and the design of the park was presented as an open competition to various landscape architects. The winners, Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, designed the park to have a completely natural look.

The Central Park Carousel

The Central Park Carousel didn’t start in Central Park. In fact, the carousel was first installed on Coney Island, and only later, in 1951, did the carousel get transferred to Central Park. The Central Park Carousel is one of the world’s largest carousels.
