Central Park's Urban Park Rangers specialize in the interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city's long history.

Seneca Village was an important community of predominantly African-American property owners living in an area that now makes up part of Central Park. Learn about the lives of Seneca Village's residents in the 1800s and the community's place in pre-Central Park.
