How and why did what is now the Bronx go from an area of great estates to a community of modest homes and great parks? The 1888 creation of the Bronx Parks system, 125 years ago, was perhaps the clearest turning point for the Bronx, even though Pelham Bay Park would not be within the city limits for another 17 years. Dart Westphal will discuss some of the reasons and the consequences of a movement to create “Free Playground(s) for the People.” Registration requested. Free
