Central Park is by far my favorite place in New York City. But Olmsted created over 600 public parks - including Boston's Emerald Necklace and Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square.
PBS recently aired Olmsted and America's Urban Parks. If you weren't able to catch the show, watch it here.
A big thank you to Fredrick Law Olmsted! : ) I can't imagine NYC, Boston or Philadelphia without its parks. Which of his parks is your favorite?
