Transforming A Central Park Landmark

Central Park is like a gift to New York. It is an 843 acre oasis of sprawling lawns, trees and ponds, in which to escape the cacophony and clamor of Manhattans thoroughfares. Within the oasis is Tavern On The Green, a restaurant nearly as storied and iconic as Central Park itself. It is a gift within the gift. Since its opening in 1934 Tavern On The Green has been the site of countless weddings (and other important occasions). The landmark restaurant closed on January 1, 2010. As its highly anticipated 2014 re-opening approached, it became a very sought-after venue. People could not wait for the gift to re-open.
