View from The Dairy in Central Park New York

A view from The Dairy in Central Park New York. This was designed by Vaux and erected in 1870.This area of the park was originally seen as the Children's District and the Dairy was built to look like a stone cottage. Fresh milk was brought in here from approved farms outside the city and sold as cheaply as possible, before this many children had died from drinking milk provided by cows kept in bad conditions in the city. As milk became improved in the city and through general neglect of the park, the building fell into decay.During the 1970's the Central Park Conservancy was formed and by 1981 the whole of the Dairy's buildings and structures had been restored. It now serves as an information centre and has lovely views across to the city.
