About this Event:

Madison Square Park rivals Fifth Avenue as having one of the most festive histories during the holiday season so join Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers for some pre-holiday history as you stroll around the secrets of one NYC’s oldest public gathering spaces. The park was named for James Madison, the fourth president of the United States and it’s also the start of the famous avenue with the same name. It has been an urban public place since 1686 and officially became a public park in 1847.  It has also been home to some of the most famous art installations in New York’s history, including the torch of Lady Liberty.
