    They are likely spending a lot of extra money to ensure the relative fidelity of their historicist re-creation. I would have preferred a contemporary design, of course, but the consensus seems to be that Central Park must at all costs keep its original look, almost 150 years old.

    Yes, gorgeous photo! You don't often see sunshine on the north side of those buildings, nor an empty sheep meadow.
