By Alexander Garvin.

Planner Alexander Garvin explains everything that anybody (whether they are citizen activists, public officials, professional landscape architects, architects, or planners) needs to know about the critical role public parks play in creating livable communities. Millions of dollars are being spent on restoring parks and creating new ones. Garvin explains the rationales for their existence, the forms they take, their value, ways to pay for and govern them, and the ingredients that make successful parks.

The success of the Bryant Park's renovation and renewal is in part the product of the work and ideas of remarkable authors. This is one book that championed the ideas on which we have built Bryant Park's management, or that dedicated some of its content to Bryant Park.
