"Central Park Love Song is both an intimate portrait and meticulous research of America's first great public park and the most visited site in New York City. Beginning with the narrator and his dog wandering the battered but still beautiful park in the late 1970s, readers learn why the park is so large on an island so small, why it grows in the center of Manhattan, and what has been lost to the needs of an ever-changing city. These and other stories weave through the narrative as the reader and narrator discover every cave and cranny of the park's 843 acres and later see the park in new ways with his children, much as he did with his dog three decades before."
