Built to house munitions for the NYS National Guard, the Arsenal resembles a fortress with its crenellated cornice and rooftop turrets. Now NYC Parks headquarters, the building has served as a police station, zoo, weather station and the first American Museum of Natural History. Its treasures include WPA murals, original drawings of Central Park and roof gardens with spectacular views. Join the Urban Park Rangers on a tour of this historic building.
