    Central Park Conservatory Garden

    in Photography

    The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.


    It is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French, and English. The Garden's main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. 


    The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.


    A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.


    On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.


    spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips,  all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.


    In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.


    To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.


    There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays.


    A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.


    At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.


    The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool. 


    The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.


    For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.

    Hi Five on Brunch In The Basement With JaVonne

    in Music

    Hi Five is the group that you have to know if you love R&B. Such hits as "I Like (The Kissing Game)" "She's Playing Hard To Get" "I Can't Wait Another Minute " and "Unconditional Love" are a serious part of the fabric of American R&B. Real songs that you can dance and sing to and fall in love to at the same time. Waco Texas, Oklahoma, and The Boogie Down Bronx merged and created the sound we know today as Hi Five. These brothers are still making it do what it do with a new smash hit song, "Sunshine"...Ladies, hold on to your chairs as you listen to this interview with Hi Five...Call in and show some love if you aint too shy :-)

    Yusef Salaam of the Central Park Five

    in Current Events

    Yusef Salaam is one of the exonerated men of the Central Park Five. On April 19th 1989, at just 15 yrs of age, he along with 4 other young boys were being falsely arrested for the horrific crime of rape. The victim had no memory of the incident; and these boys, from 14 - 16 yrs old, had no prior arrest records. They later became known as the ‘Central Park 5’, victims themselves in New York City’s historical “Central Park Jogger Case.”
    Yusef relives the effect that this case had on his life as the police sporadically rounded him up. All five were tried and convicted.  In May 2002, Matias Reyes, a convicted rapist and murdered, admitted he was the sole attacker of the jogger.  On December 19th 2002, the convictions of The Central Park 5 were overturned.
