Ice-age glaciers, Native Americans, Dutch traders, British Redcoats, and the Underground Railroad have all left their mark on New York City.  Their stories can be found in the names of our streets, our architecture, and our parks.  Urban Park Rangers specialize in interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city’s long history.
