9780789210913: The Ramble in Central Park: A Wilderness West of Fifth

For many New Yorkers, Central Park is Manhattan’s crown jewel and what makes the city livable year round. For tourists, this urban oasis is a must-see destination on any sightseeing visit. For acclaimed photographer Robert A. McCabe, Central Park is defined by its Ramble a densely forested thirty-eight acres replete with stunning lake vistas, enormous granite boulders, a canopy of trees, winding paths and streams, and ornate and rustic bridges. McCabe’s photographs in The Ramble in Central Park: A Wilderness West of Fifth have captured this wooded labyrinth in its off-the-beaten-path glory in its most photogenic seasons.

The Ramble in Central Park is primarily organized by four regions, supplemented by one large map by Christopher Kaeser of the entire area and four close-ups of each section. The text is a series of essays by writers including The New Yorker’s E. B. White and C. Stevens. Topics cover the history of the park’s creation by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, and the failed attempt of Robert Moses to essentially eliminate the Ramble in the 1950s, as well as the Ramble’s 250 species of woodland birds and the area’s remarkable geology and plant life. A compelling introduction by Central Park Conservancy President and Administrator Douglas Blonsky describes the recent renovation and continued protection of the Ramble.

This photography book should appeal to nature lovers, bird watchers, and New York residents and visitors alike. It is the perfect tourist souvenir before or after a visit to Central Park and The Ramble.

From the Inside Flap:

A photographic tribute to the untamed heart of Central Park.

Central Park is Manhattan’s crown jewel, a refreshing retreat for city dwellers and a must-see destination for tourists. For photographer Robert A. McCabe, Central Park is defined by its Ramble thirty-eight densely forested acres replete with stunning lake views, enormous granite boulders, a canopy of trees, winding paths and streams, and bridges rustic and ornate. McCabe’s images in The Ramble in Central Park capture this wooded labyrinth in all its off-the-beaten-path glory, and in its most photogenic seasons.

The Ramble in Central Park is organized into four parts, each depicting one section of the Ramble: the East, the South, Gill Creek Valley, and the West. The photographs are accompanied by a specially commissioned map of the Ramble, reproduced in whole and in detail, and by a series of essays from writers including E. B. White, Marie Winn, and Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, on topics ranging from the Ramble’s creation to its plant and bird life. An introduction by Central Park Conservancy President Douglas Blonsky describes the recent renovation and continued preservation of the Ramble.

This beautifully photographed and printed book will appeal to nature lovers, bird watchers, and New York residents and visitors alike. It is the perfect souvenir of a visit to Central Park and the Ramble.
