Saving the Olmsted-Beil House

February 12, 2018

The Olmsted-Beil House, the one-time home of Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park with Calvert Vaux sits in disrepair behind unwelcoming signs.

 

The city bought the house about 12 years ago.  It is now negotiating to buy an adjacent house and lot that would make it easier to reach the Olmsted house,  But that purchase is taking time, to the apparent frustration of a state senator, Andrew J. Lanza, a Republican who has worked to arrange funding.
