Questions & Answers About the History of the Proposed Central Park “History Plaza” (26)

In thinking about the odd “history plaza” being proposed for installation next to the Hattie Weber in Central Park, I began to wonder about the manner in which it proceeded through the City process of review and evaluation.

To help figure this out, I formulated some questions about that process and sent them to Anne Brunette, one of the lead city staff in the overall Central Park project.

Very promptly, she sent me an account of the process.

Because of the bearing these questions and answers have on the status of the “history plaza,” I publish both of them here.  

 Actually, I am, at her request, publishing what seems to be a slight revision of her original account.

In a future post,  I will offer an analysis of all this.
