The Wall Street Journal just published a profile piece on the resurgence of Madison Square Park from its falling into disrepair, prostitutes and drug dealers in the 1980′-90’s, a far cry from its glory of the 1800’s and early 1900’s when the park was “the centerpiece of one of New York’s grandest neighborhoods, an area that hosted visiting presidents and famous families.”

One thing from the story was new to us, which is that reportedly restauranteur Danny Meyer became interested in Madison Squarer Park after reading the book The Alienist, which we are going to have to read now.

Read the full Wall Street Journal profile here, and check out a video they produced as part of the story below.
