Central Park serves as the apotheosis of an idyllic American childhood — a childhood of carousels and toy boats, of ice rinks and small castles, of playgrounds and bridges — and its magical allure is undeniable for child and adult alike. This series celebrates these landmarks, which over the years have transcended their original function to loom much larger than their intended purpose to become part of the collective American mythology.
