From marathons and boat races to public hearings and cocktail parties, Central Park is one of Wiseman’s most diverse and detailed portraits of a contemporary social institution. The vast differences in the meanings and uses of the park become clear, as birdwatchers explore, gay men cruise, and tennis players fight for (or against) a new tennis house.
