Long before Charging Bull landed controversially at the Northern tip, long before the destruction of Fort Amsterdam which lied on it’s Southern face, long before it housed public protests against the British during the Colonial era, the small patch of land we now know as of Bowling Green was set aside in 1733 as the first public park in New York City, then called New Amsterdam.

In this vintage photograph captured about 167 years after the parks opening, we see Bowling Green and its surrounding office buildings on Broadway from above.

Check out the specimen page on the Library of Congress for more info on the photograph.
