Slides and History of NYC Playgrounds

Playgrounds Grow Up is the title of an article and slide show highlighting a history of playgrounds in NYC. The article was published in Jan. 2007 in the NY Times. This slide show and audio narrative provides a great overview and history of playgrounds over the last century. The slide show ends with Imagination Playground which I blogged about last Friday, April 18.

Imagination Playground: A model for future urban playgrounds.

Thanks to Playscapes Blog for pointing out a great slide show that I would have otherwise missed.
