Tomorrow at noon, join our virtual tour of Prospect Park and explore Brooklyn’s scenic treasure designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux after their completion of Central Park. Untapped New York tour guide Jeremy Wilcox will take a stroll through Prospect Park, from the ravine past the Boathouse and over to the lake. We’ll explore the best of the park’s southern end while you learn why Olmsted and Vaux came to prefer this park to their original Manhattan creation.
Along the way, Jeremy will recount the history of the park and how their experiences with Central Park shaped this area’s trajectory. Hear how Vaux’s decision to scrap the original plan led to the creation of the nearby Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Learn the history of this land in Brooklyn, from Dutch farming to Revolutionary War battles! You’ll discover a new appreciation for Brooklyn and its amazing history. And, explore Brooklyn’s only remaining natural forest.
