FEATURES:
Since New York City has less green space per capita than any other major American city, it is no wonder that we want every inch of it to do double and even triple duty. Frederick Law Olmsted himself understood that Central Park visitors would use the reservoir for boating and skating, and not just the appreciation of nature. Our appetite for activity-oriented open spaces remains as strong as ever, and soon, the New York area will have even more to offer. From revivals of 19th-century building types like the camera obscura and the carousel to modern American entertainments such as waterparks and malls, a slew of new projects will provide a variety of outdoor amusements this summer and many to come.
