Manhattan is an island that has Central Park at its geographical centre. Central Park is a green island in the midst of the urban extreme, called New York City. A green reservoir in the centre of the city, Central Park is a sacred oasis, 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 of New York City. It offers a microcosm of possibilities for much further beyond.
Lorna McNeur is CJC Chair, a Retired Cambridge University Lecturer in Architecture, Body Psychotherapist, and is active in Cambridge local Community Green Space development. Hometown was New York City.
