It is easy to forget that you are in a crowded city while walking through this spectacular park! The original plan for the City of New York, laid out by the City Commissioners in 1811 did not include the park. But as the city grew rapidly in size, we needed a place for New Yorkers to get a breath of fresh air! Central Park, with its 843 acres of meadows, lawns, ponds, lakes and more, was the solution. Today it is one of the best-known parks in the world and is enjoyed by millions-both locals and tourists alike.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Discussion |
A conversation on civics and politics with New Yorker staff writer George Packer and National Review executive editor Reihan Salam, moderated by the President of The New York Public Library, Anthony Marx. These voices from different backgrounds and views will come together for a frank and challenging discussion on some of our most complicated sociopolitical questions.Packer and Salam will explore with Marx our age of anxiety. As the characters do in W. H. Auden's poem of the same name, many Americans today seem to be struggling to understand their place in a country and a world that is changing too fast. How that sense of alienation has impacted world events and will continue to impact political life remain up for debate. In what ways do our fears divide (or unite) us? And, more importantly, how are they defining us?
