Prospect Park: Olmsted and Vaux's Brooklyn Masterpiece

  • $ 4500

Created nearly 150 years ago by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert B. Vaux, designers of New York's Central Park, the duo considered Prospect Park their true masterpiece—Prospect Park, the first monograph on this exquisite public space, makes it easy to see why. Presenting a wealth of archival images, newly commissioned photography, and insightful text, David P. Colley and Elizabeth Keegin Colley trace the park's colorful history from its creation in the mid-nineteenth century and decline in the 1970s, to its restoration in the 1980s and the 2013 construction of the Lakeside Center facility.
