New York City’s Central Park was America’s first major landscaped public park. It is a favorite destination for tourists and locals alike, and a treasure in the mind of Elie Hirschfeld. With 42 million visits each year to its 843 acres, today Central Park is the most frequently visited urban park in the United States.
Elie Hirschfeld is a Chairman Circle Member of the Conservancy, and in early 2017 he contributed $20,000. towards two Central Park benches named for Hirschfeld, in honor of his love of Central Park and the important historic components of the city’s landscape.
