From the city’s founding in 1624 to the City Beautiful movement in the 20th century, New York City's landscape legacy is rich and nationally significant.
New York City Guide
In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service (NPS), The Cultural Landscape Foundation and NPS are partnering to document nationally significant landscapes in five cities. The second of five interactive online guides, the What’s Out There Cultural Landscapes Guide for New York City was preceded by a guide to Philadelphia (March 2016), and will be followed by guides to cultural landscapes in Boston, MA (Spring 2017), Richmond, VA (Fall 2017), and Baltimore, MD (Spring 2018).
Discover the extraordinary range of New York City's designed landscapes through illustrated essays of nearly 70 sites, all of which can be explored on an interactive map.
