Manhattan is an island that has Central Park at its geographical centre. Central Park is an oasis in the midst of the urban extreme of New York City. A green reservoir in the centre of the city, Central Park is an island of nature, sitting at the centre of Manhattan. This presentation reveals the process and discovery of the plan of New York City embedded within the plan of Central Park. As a mirror of the city, Central Park holds secrets about ways of bringing vital levels of healing into the urban intensity, called New York City.
