Dedicated in 1987 to lphigene Ochs Sulzberger,
president of the Central Park Association from
1934 to 1950, this walkway at the northern
end of the Ramble has a particularly seasonal
appeal with blooming deep pink crabapple
trees that adorn its eastern boundary.
Sulzberger, a member of the New York Times
publishing dynasty, used her influence with the
prestigious daily to actively denounce any effort
to offer up Central Park to any and all commercial
interests and effectively initiated the political
battle to return the Park to its past glory.
A powerfully active preservationist she was an
inspirational force for the creation of the
Central Park Conservancy which has since taken
up the battle to preserve, maintain and resurrect
Central Park from the ashes of past ruin and neglect.
