We visited Central Park, and the Bethesda Terrace was a delight.  The stonework kept me busy for a good hour as I explored each unique panel and carving featuring amazing depictions of flora and fauna.  The birds, in particular, made me smile. 😍

Wiki says - "The Terrace, designed by Calvert Vaux with sculptural decoration by Jacob Wrey Mould, was restored in the 1980s,  its stonework disassembled, cleaned, deteriorated surfaces removed, restored, patched, and reset.

In Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted's 1858 Greensward Plan, the terrace at the end of the Mall overlooking the naturalistic landscape of the Lake was called merely The Water Terrace, but after the unveiling of the angel, its name was changed to Bethesda Terrace.
The panels of carving in the abstracted organic style propounded by Owen Jones, a mentor of the sculptor Jacob Wrey Mould are organized by an iconographical program of themes: the Seasons, the Times of Day, the Ages of Mankind.  Considerable latitude was offered the carvers executing the work, following Ruskinian principles."

Pick it up to find out how Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted transformed a tract of Manhattan land into Central Park. And keep an eye out here on Instagram, where I’ll be sharing more sneak peeks into the making of this book leading up to its release. .

Seriously, dudes, I appreciate that we’re a non-conformist household, protesting corporations, Israel and stuff, but can we at least get a color TV? I heard that Orange is the New Black, but all I’m getting is 50 Shades of Grey.⠀

Landmarks of Central Park at the annual Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden which is on through January 21st, shared via Facebook livestream by @nycparks. Paul Busse of Applied Imagination designs the wonderful displays created from natural materials. Wonderful to return and see this year’s “Lower Manhattan” theme. The soundtrack is that of children exclaiming in delight at the many wonders at their eye level. Both beautiful parks share the design talent of Calvert Vaux.

Carl Schurz Park first opened in 1876 and was designed by Calvert Vaux (1824-1895) in 1902, though he died before it was completed. Vaux is famous for designing Central Park along with his protege Frederick Law Olmsted. .

I love walking around the city—This is the old 77th street entrance (castle entrance) of The American Museum of Natural History.  It is one of the largest museums in the world, easily noticeable from inside and out as to it just seems to keep going. Located in Theodore Roosevelt Park across the street from Central Park, the museum complex comprises 28 interconnected buildings housing 45 permanent exhibition halls, in addition to a planetarium and a library and occupies more than 2 million square feet.
The original building (designed by Calvert Vaux) was completed in 1877, but much of what you see currently from the street(s) was added 1891-1910 and designed by J. Cleaveland Cady.
This building is just as diverse architecturally as it is inside with Victorian Gothic design initially with a ton of Neo Romanesque architecture in the early 1900s added.  It never fails to keep my son entertained over the last 5 years with ocean life (of course the whale) and reptiles/dinosaurs to gems/minerals and meteorites.

“The Angel of the Waters” in the Bethesda Fountain appeared surrounded by mist this evening. The sculpture by the American artist Emma Stebbins was commissioned during the original design of Central Park and with a reference to the biblical “healing waters of Bethesda.” Her inspiration of the angel was the actress Charlotte Cushman, her lifelong companion who was fighting cancer at the time. Upon their return from studio art work in Italy, Cushman passed away and Stebbins never made another sculpture. Today the “Angel of the Waters” stands as one of the greatest 19c. American sculptures in one of the most iconic fountains in the world. High above the water a weightless Angel stands as a symbol of healing; for me it also immortalizes a love against all odds.

“Genius of Place.” The Minton tile arcade at Bethesda Terrace is just one of many of Central Park’s features that was planned with a purpose.  The open air hall gives visitors shelter from the elements.  It isn’t uncommon to find a performer making use of the acoustics.

Central Park again. I did it more these last 2 weeks than my decade in NYC. The story of the Park is fascinating and walking through de 843 acres knowing the whole thing has been created from scratch, “landscaped” and nothing is actually “natural” makes it all the more mesmerizing. Love it.

Built and designed in 1869 by Chicago architect William LeBaron Jenney, this Italianate home belonged to William T. Allen, a major investor of the Riverside Improvement Company, which helped oversee Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted's General Plan of Riverside of the same year. If you recognize the home, then you might have seen it in the Keanu Reeves-Sandra Bullock film "The Lake House."

The building of the Metropolitan Museum of Art has been added to and altered numerous times throughout its 138-year history in Central Park (though the Museum was incorporated in 1870, it did not move to its Central Park location until a decade later). The gallery space recognized as the Medieval Sculpture Hall today was the location of the original Main Hall the initial 1880 structure designed by Calvert Vaux. Today, the gallery is in a Neo-Romanesque style (fitting for a space dedicated to Medieval Art), but the original roof created by Vaux was actually in a much more modern and characteristic late-19th-century architectural style, with a roof made of of cast-iron and glass (as seen in image #2). The Neo-Romanesque roof and space of the gallery today only dates to a major reconstruction project in 1938, the same year that the Met Cloisters were opened. 
To learn more about the history of the building and collections of this great New York art institution, join us this Monday, November 12th @ 11:00 AM for our tour of “America’s Museum: Art and History of the Metropolitan” with one of our Art Historian guides!
