Staircase of Morningside Park

This picture shows Morningside Park, probably around 1910. This park was recognized as problematic park-wise from the day it was proposed, due to its steep and rocky western slope, useless for most recreational purposes. It has had a picturesque but troubled history for many years since, though it is now improving due to the efforts of Friends of Morningside Park.
