"There are so many unrung bells when it comes to A. H. Green, even though New York would be an entirely different city were it not for him." He is credited for being behind the implementation of a number of New York City's most notable places: Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, the Bronx Zoo, and Riverside and Morningside Parks. "Arguably most important, Green was a guiding force behind the movement that led in 1898 to the consolidation of competing municipalities into the modern five-borough city." After years of making the case for it, the freelance writer who has been determined to memorialize Green's contributions beyond a lonely stone bench in Central Park, will finally get his way.
