NY Central Park reborn in designers' vision

A year after a summer storm devasted New York City's Central Park, destroying 500 trees and damaging hundreds more beyond survival, the New York Times reports that the park's keepers are using this as an opportunity to restore the overgrown park to more closely resemble the 1858 designs of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.

It is a chance, said Adrian Benepe, New York parks commissioner, to open up vistas that have been closed off to visitors by overgrown trees as well as invasive trees that were never in the original designs.
