"Tell us about when Mount Auburn sort of formalized the idea of emphasizing places in urban wildlife refuge and set specific sustainability goals like what's that? When did that happen? Well. I would I would say even before I was here, there was certainly a focus on a at some degree of sustainability sustainable practices, but it wasn't. It really started ramping up and you know after I got here because of my own interests, many of the other staff at the time as well and we really felt it was time to do more focus spend more time focusing on and really do the right thing and. It gradually became more formalized Because I'm sorry term planning processes and and when are several years ago we did a strategic plan and one of the top level and strategic initiatives of the plan was to be a model of environmental stewardship. So it really that's when it really became Kinda Corp Institution wide. Horticulture Department. Because of in the. Area I. Mean you're this piece of ecological uniqueness I think I read and one description right? I mean it's it's an unusual place to have one hundred and seventy five acres. In the conditioner. Really. It's it's such an important more and more important these days because we're in surrounded by an urban environment and. Green Open greenspace. That's good for my life and people is that much more important than it used to be and recognized as being important so it's Yeah. We're really in a kind of a unique spot. So. Now as with Central Park in New York City and other such spaces like the birds for instance, and you have a lot of birds they are especially during migration periods at Mount Auburn. Birds knew all along. This was a great ecologically important spot. So tell us a little bit about the wildlife and who calls home and so forth. The I? Say forever third says. Stop Vice About Auburn but. On on the fly over the path of migrating birds, you know come and kind of fun you following the coastline. from Central America and up on up north. So we're right in that in that flyway in in recent years more, the more urbanization has happened the more. Here. We are at the birds fly over and all they say is one hundred, seventy, five acres of five thousand trees in the tree tops is fine over. So it really is an obvious place for them to. Stop and take arrest them get replenished with. Food on their way north we happen to be in you know in in an area zone that birds are migrating through anyway, and of course, there's also a lot of resident birds as well that. Take Up. Space, here. And I imagine that you have bird clubs and stuff worth that left to be there and looking at birds. Yes absolutely that's where we are quite popular destination for many. Many very clubs and Amasau of on society and other. Organizations that that that organized groups to bring here and then just as people. Flock here from as individuals especially in May and peak migrating season, but also throughout the year. So it's not just birds I know for instance, when you did your woodland, you did you've done a number of as part of the sort of overall Mandate of of greater stability and and being more of a wildlife refuge in in recent years that's intensified you've done a number of projects you restored with didn't chew I mean or your receive in restoring the woodland. Tell us a little bit of some of the sort of steps and what did you do? Did you kind of monitor populations and figure out who is there and what you needed to do to what's thought process that when you when you begin an and again, this is a historic place and a place that a lot of people have. attachment to. You know it's an emotional place. It's a treasured place so you can't just change everything right? You have limitation. Right. Glad. You mentioned that we still are very much a an active ongoing cemetery.

Today I decided to do a little a little something different for all Lt. I've I'm expanding my my my mind and my different areas, and like going back in time to where where I was like where I wasn't high school, and what my where my interest lied, so. Today my topic is going to be on Sondheim. is to make. DIS lunch everybody La. So. Caveat. About Sante time. Your girl Lauren is recovering musical theater nerd. I cannot sing which I think. Where a lot of my resentment lies about musical theater, so I used to be super musical theater, and then I was not, and I am to this day like very uncomfortable with musicals, so I am not super familiar with Sondheim like the nitty gritty about it so I will not be. You know giving you personal stories about things, but I will say son. Heim has been involved with both one of my favorite musicals and my most hated musical, the musical I hate more than anything in the whole wide World Flint. Let's just get into it. Shall we please? Stephen Joshua Sondheim was born march twenty, second, nineteen thirty. He is still alive. He's ninety this year. Yep and we'll talk about that in a minute, but He was born into a Jewish family in new. York City the son of Janet and Herbert Sondheim. His father manufactured dresses designed by his mother. and. The composer grew up on the upper west side of Manhattan and after his parents divorced on a farm near Doylestown Pennsylvania so he was an only child of well-to-do parents, and he lived in the San. Remo on Central Park West and was described in Merrill. seacrest biography, which is called Stephen Sondheim a life. He was an isolated, emotionally neglected child. Perfect for. Perfect for musical theatre Yep he traces his interest in theater to warm for May, which was a broadway musical. He saw when he was nine quote. The curtain went up and reveal the piano. sondheim recalled a Butler to the duster and brushed it up tinkling the keys. I thought that was thrilling. He attended the New York. Military Academy and George School, which was a private quaker preparatory school in Bucks County Pennsylvania. When Sondheim was ten years old, his father already, a distant figure had left his mother for another woman. Herbert sought custody of Steven, but was unsuccessful. sondheim explained it biographer secrets that he was what they called an institutionalized child, meaning one who had no contact with any kind of family. You're in though its luxurious, you're in an environment that supplies you with everything, but human contact, no brothers and sisters, no parents, and yet plenty to eat and friends to play with and a warm bed, you know. SONDHEIM detested his mother, who is said to be psychologically abusive and projected her anger from her failed marriage onto her son. He said when my father left her. She substituted me for him and she used me the way she used him to. Come onto and berate. beat up on. You see what she did for five years is treat me like dirt, but come on to me at the same time. She wants wrote him a letter I know. She wants wrote him a letter, saying that the quote only regrets, she ever had was giving him birth.

Discussing 'The Talk'

"So on top of just having to be a mom, and do things like teach the oldest how to drive your also as a black mother, a black mother of three black boys. Having to talk to them about the news in a very specific way. What are you saying to them about? George Floyd and his death and the police and these protests. Yeah, it's obviously not the first time they are sixteen in fourteen, and for some people You know this may be the first time they've had to have the conversation. It is not the first time for us. we had to have what's known in the black culture as the talk. Many of times I'll never forget. There was a time. Earlier House. We had a park right behind us, and they wanted to go to the park. This was all say you know I kind of put them in. Errors was right around the time of Landau, Casteel and Alton Sterling and I was it was really wrong with me. My third son was just born and. You know I had many moments where I was holding him getting him. And crying as I did so, because I, while loved this little bundle of joy, immensely also just the amount of fears and worries of what I just brought into the world again with another black Sun, and the burdens that I have to carry that again, and so it was really raw for me around that time and I just remember them asking go to the park and the laundry list of what I had to tell them. Don't wear your hood. Don't put your hands in your pocket. If you get stopped, don't run. Put Your hands up. Don't make a lot of moves. Tell them your mother works for NPA I mean it just went on and on? There's IT's funny. They're stages as they start to get older one. It's the you just don't even want them to draw attention to themselves enough. For someone to call on them or get stopped then there's the stages of what you do. If you do get caught and then more recently, I remember. I had them watch. We all watch a family together Eva d'auvergne as when they see us. And it was really really hard for them to go through, and they were really torn because they were these were young kids. That was a central. Park five and they were Young kids themselves in there. Watching this and that was the first time that it changed to a new iteration of the talk and that talk was. What do you do once? You're inside those walls. Don't ever sign a confession. Don't ever let them tell you that. Your mom told you it's okay. Don't ever do this at and I was just like. Oh, my Gosh! It doesn't stop with this and so this time around. It has been more about. I will be honest This time around. It's more about what's not fair. And just be you know this just isn't fair? You guys, but this is the the world is. This is the way America is right now. It's the way it's been for a long time and I can't lie to you I. Don't think it's going to change in your lifetime, and it's just not fair. It's not fair for us to have to live like this. I, imagine. that it probably gets emotionally taxing for you. To keep having these conversations with your boys when stories like George Floyd up seems like every few weeks or months now What is your emotional state? Having to give this talk again and again and again. Yeah! You know it's I gotta be honest about it. The more happens the hardest to say optimistic about it. And I mean we have an example right here within the span of one month of two different incidences that we've had to talk to them through, and I will tell you with the Ahmad Aubrey. Shooting there was a sorrow. Honestly because we're in the in the middle pandemic, most of us were still in his shelter in place then and even pandemic, even when someone's home, even when everything when American world should be still and yet still killing black unarmed black men in the streets. That's the one thing we can still seem to count on for America and that hit me like a ton of bricks. And that hurt my heart that that was the truth of where racism is is in this country, but even when everything stopped, that's the one thing that continue dishes what it is and so that conversation with them that talk with there were a lot of tears. There were a lot of a lot of helplessness I. Don't know what to do anymore. You guys I don't know how to save you I. Don't know how to keep you safe. I don't know. You know my husband and I certainly have been sure to provide. Even you know wherever we did. Start a very good life for them more than what we had and make sure that we live places where we felt safe as a family where they were in the best school districts where they could you know I always looked at very diverse neighborhoods as well because that it was important to me. But. There was. There started to be fought for the first time of I. Did everything to make sure that we weren't in crime ridden areas. And that we were in safe neighborhoods, and that they did get the best and. Still. I fear for them walking down the street. Still. Did I do even more of a disservice by being the only black family on this street. Do we have to do more work by making sure that everyone knows us? And everyone knows our heart in who we are and be friends with everyone, and even if that is that enough, because you don't know if someone's mother-in-law visits, and and does it no, you and wonder why my kids are riding their bike, or if someone wanders over from another street and questions us, it's it's. It's one of those places where I you know my talk with my kids at that point is. I it was a bit like I. said I'm hopeless. I! Just don't know what to do anymore I just

This is at the same time when when I did not understand was there is a police officer that is facing the camera. of the person that's video unlike people from blocking it out, but my my my thought is. Why won't you go over handcuffed this man and y'all just put him in the car. It's over whatever he did wrong. He did that wrong, we he didn't have the DAF. Question because he's a black man. Question because he's wants once he's handcuffed. It's over. It's over one you. Retained he was on the ground. So. Yes there. You have it Tommy. There was nothing else going on.

Yeah, if he was just sitting there. I don't know if you realize that, and and now the video is gone. Down everywhere. And they pretty much did arrest. They said that as well that he resisted arrest. Users fairly. Resisted arrest. When you had him handcuffed, he was arrested. So what so you had him put him in a car and move on. Seven minutes on my neck. What else you know when you need at least like know what else it's so weird that that hold is in the police record that they're allowed legal. It's legal.

D. that would be the Lincoln Park police department responded to a lone occupant single car motor vehicle crash yesterday the crash is believed to have resulted from the driver wearing an N. ninety five mask for several hours and subsequently passing out behind the wheel due to insufficient oxygen intake excessive carbon dioxide intake according to this little blurb we also know that nothing was uncovered at the accident scene that would suggest that the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol while we don't know the cause with one hundred percent certainty we do know the driver had been wearing an N. ninety five mask inside the vehicle for several hours and ultimately passed out while operating the vehicle and then the cops told residents that they should continue to follow the directions of governor Phil Murphy in New Jersey for wearing a face covering in public but wearing an N. ninety five mask while driving with no other occupants is unnecessary unless if you're in a call with your wife and your home with your wife your kids I don't know if it's necessary to wear it inside the car either the driver was taken to a local hospital where they're decapitated head was reattached and they're already open up about so not kidding because there was no no decapitation but the driver was treated for non life threatening injuries and I'm looking at a picture of the vehicle from the Lincoln Park New Jersey police department and that car has a beautiful V. shaped waves right in the other car looks to be total to me what is that is that a looks like it's some kind of a small station wagon is that a Subaru that might be a forester or it might be a Subaru wagon at first glance but again I just don't see passing out from an N. ninety five mask away this hold on a minute wait a minute we have somebody on the line who says they are afraid that passed out wearing a mask well maybe this is something we will folks if if you know somebody or view of lost consciousness yourself wearing an N. ninety five mask or if you have any story to add here I'll be a naysayer skeptic here because I do tons of heavy breathing physical activity with the mascot and I have nothing that indicates even remote loss of consciousness or even a gas like I am being oxygen deprived that's why tonight I am going to bring my pulse oximeter and I will test my oxygen levels all posted on.

"All right. So the park is going downhill in the nineteen sixties and seventies. We mentioned a few reasons another big reason was that. There was no no ownership. No one had ultimate responsibility. Right. Like, I feel like the buck was being passed all over the city. Holy no, one was happy about it. But there was no body in place to say, no, this is we gotta fix this now. And if you look pictures of central park in the seventies, man. Oh, yeah. And I mean, it was like all of New York. It wouldn't look like a wasteland. It was like the warriors in there. Yeah. Like, these classic places like the boat house and the skating rink or like graffitied and like trash everywhere just hard to believe broken. All replace the statue was being vandalized. It's like it is it is it's sad to see. But it's also unbelievable to see now that you know, what central park looks like just how bad it was in the seventies and eighties and interest sixties. It was actually there wasn't. Like, a Robert Moses champion, and it was starting to go downhill, but it was nothing like it was when they finally in the seventies. Where his like, whatever forget it. And it was kind of like that broken windows theory, leasing where once once you once you reach tipping point as it were it just kind of all just turns to garbage and that's central park in the seventies. And eighties was a great example of that. And it was considered like a really dangerous place that you did not want to be no after dark, and there was that very famous central park five case. Yeah. And everybody just found it so easy to believe that some teenagers had brutally attacked a woman left her for dead because it was central park. Yeah. I mean, you can't even be in there at certain hours now like they clear the park out. And I know this because I spent the night in the park for Shakespeare in the park tickets any lineup you hang out and party. With people right in line until I can't remember what time it was. But something like two AM and the cops come around, and they say everybody get up, and they walk you in order out onto the sidewalk in right there on I don't know if it was the east or west side, but they basically move the entire line out of the park. And then then you're sleeping on the sidewalk all night. And then in the morning, they come back, and they move you all back into the park right in line. And everyone just does it must have been a hell of a Shakespeare play. It was the most legendary what was wasn't the Segel every told you about that the Siegel? That's like Chekhov or something. Yeah. It doesn't mean. Everything is Shakespeare, it's just kind of makes it sound like that's just the name of the program. But it's this was the Siegel. Yeah. And it was the CEO with Kevin Kline Meryl Streep enjoyed John Goodman and Christopher Walken. Wow. Dilip Seymour Hoffman and George Seagal Natalie Portman. Wow. And. There was like two more directed by Mike Nichols. It was like one of the most legendary performances ever bet. And that's the one where I saw James Lipton wearing a inside the actors studio jacket.

"But like you said that we need to follow up on it. I they had a bunch of rules in place that. Kind of kept it for the wealthier New Yorkers for sure. So like the history of central park is actually a history of class struggle in New York big time. And when it when it opened initially it was kind of like, thanks for the park chumps the taxpayer money. Yeah. And it was like if there was any kind of vent herb or orchestra band or anything like that it took place from Monday to Saturday because if you were labor if you're part of the working class the only day of the week, you had off was Sunday carriages were very much welcomed, and they made up something like fifty or sixty percent of the visitors arrived in carriages yet in the first decade. Fifty percent were in carriages. But like five percent of New Yorkers were wealthy enough to afford care. That says it all right? Exactly. So basically, it was kind of like a stay out kind of thing. They had a ban on group picnics. Yeah. That was a big ones though. Like, all these, you know, big immigrant. Families that love to get together. In large groups. None of that. Couldn't do it. Go to the cemetery. You couldn't ride around in a work cart? So like, yeah. Like if you had a high struck. Yeah. Sorry. Like you wanted to put your family in it to take him out for a Sunday drive note. None of those you had a nice carriage. So they're always all these rules that were enforced for a little while. And then finally the rest of New York, the other New Yorkers said, this is B S. Yeah. Let's let's loosen these up a little bit and they finally petitioned for some changes in central park. Finally in the eighteen seventies became a true public park. Yes. Like little by little us. When it started to ease on some of these rules, apparently olmstead was not a fan of children traipsing all over the grass. So he would have been none too pleased with family picnics and all of it on the. Great lawn. Yeah. Obviously that changed over the years as well. And since you know, mid eighteen seventy five in on it's been a series of progressive minded, people that have opened up the park in democratized it decades and decades, but it's also been kind of this push and pull like, okay how much for the people? Should we add some like a swimming pool? Yeah. Or like some like should we put the baseball stadium here? That was a proposal at one point in time..

"I saw the Heisman part just queued that up. No. I just went to the movies waited went in watched Hodgman. Twenty thousand workers worked on central park Irish labourers German gardeners. Stone native Stonecutters native-born Stonecutters and. What does say how many? Yeah. Two hundred seventy thousand trees in trubs were planted. Yep. They move at the beginning. They moved like six million cubic feet of earth in out. That's crazy. Yeah. Just the the number of trees, and shrubs that were planted just mind boggling, and it was extremely expensive to there was something like a five million dollar price tag just to acquire the land. Yeah. Supposedly that's three times higher than what they projected the actual park was going to cost. Yeah. So that's like a hundred and fifty million dollars today, man. This is at a time when you know that was a that was a bunch of money to bash. But it was also I believe there's a financial panic that really made people say like, what's this is a crazy amount of money. What are we doing? But they pressed on the civil war broke out during during this the conduction, and so construction kind of tapered off for a while. And they went and fought the war, then everybody came back, and when they came back, they brought with them an understanding of explosives so that they were able to blow away rock a lot more easily than they were a war. If for sure and there is a of false rumor or a myth that is that what bridges at one of them was supposedly made of cannonballs. Yeah. The heart bridge. I can't remember what it was something bow bridge. Vo bridge the bow bridge is that the bow bridge. Yeah. It was supposedly up until like nineteen seventy four like every book. You could read said they had giant cannibals at his found at as as its foundation has like ball bearings. Because it was like expanded in contract. It so much because of the winters. No cannibals don't they did a renovation on it. So they're building this thing. They finally in eighteen fifty nine in the winter of eighteen fifty nine is when it first opened for public use and by eighteen sixty five that park received more than seven million visitors a year as a lot..

The show you've never seen an episode of the ten thousand episodes of law and order now. Oh, you're missing out, Chris noth, and what was Prisco's name Jerry Orbach, those two. Yeah. Benjamin Bratt was a close second to the Chris. No, Jerry Orbach thing. And then it just keeps going on like they were so good at all of them were just a mania. But yeah, a lot of stuff took place in central park. So I feel like I've been there. Here's what you do Minh. Next time. We go to New York. I know that we typically stay downtown stay up by the park. Well, let's just like get out in it. I've developed a taste for the Upper West side. But but but not the park. Right. You're so close I will go out. I'll take a hillock up. Out of my way, I like Lower East Side and Upper West side of my two favorites in New York Hatton. Interesting. Yeah. What you like lower side. I like it. All man. Oh, I mean, my very favorite part of New York York's the west village for shows. Nice. But I like the recited like it in the east village, still grungy. Is there such a thing as the lower west side Wall Street now like well? I mean, Wall Street's all the way down, but I would say like. I mean, I don't think it's called the lower west side. But like the meatpacking district. Okay. Yeah. Like like the high line. That's probably lower west side. Really great. Art galleries in the meat pack. Yeah. Oh, man play. When I first started going, New York that was when it was still shady of there, and like you would walk through like blocks and blocks of industrial meatpacking plants to get to the one bar that was opened the known art of Giuliani came in different clean, the place up. Well, just thank God for him. Right. So the design of central park greensward. Oh, yeah. Like if so much information to go right now should this two parter. I don't know let me ask you has our podcast gotten more conversational. This question aside. Hesitant. I don't know. Okay. I think we've always been conversational. Yeah. But I mean like, this seems like a pinnacle of conversation all let me say this. I think episodes one through four fifty or less conversations than four fifty through twelve hundred. Okay. But what about what about twelve hundred on? I don't know. All right. The greensward plan. If you didn't know anything about central park, you may be under the misconception that they just sort of squared it off in rake some things around and and it was like there's the park, right? And like, let's just protect the screen space. But it was highly highly highly designed, oh, yeah. And apparently, they used as much explosives as would later be used at the battle of Gettysburg supposedly more to blast away rock and move that rock can remember the glacier that moved all that down. That's a big problem when you're trying to build a park. Like planted hundreds of thousands of trees swamps that they couldn't drain they build in further to build like. Yeah. So it was and I don't think anyone really thinks that like, oh, they just walled it up and said now we have a park. But I don't think I even realized how highly it was designed, and which is probably a testament to their design because when you walk around your dislike it all fits, right? That's I mean, that's the thing. Like, they're they went to a lot of trouble to make it look so naturalistic that you just assume that that's what the land always look for and central park is actually highly managed highly designed Greenspace yet exists in rectangle that when you're in the center of it from my from what I've seen in order. You can't tell that. You're you're like in the middle of the city and that like, the the the roads, none of them are straight. They're all meant to curve. There's meadows that kind of like..

"All right, choke. So I think by eighteen fifty three their head. I think in the eighteen fifties IRS like this drumbeat to have a park. Everybody wanted to park. Yeah. William Cullen Bryant was one of the big names who edited the Evening Post, which is now the New York Post, and he was a well known poet at the time in a beloved figure, but he definitely used the post as a platform to advocate for this Greenspace. Now, again, there's a lot of understanding in this day in age that the wealthiest New Yorkers wanted this park for themselves, basically. Yes, they wanted their new city that they had built to two rival Paris or London and needed a park. They wanted to go show off their carriages in the park, but they also advocated publicly for the park for the the working classes the middle class. They should have a place to to come and hang out in this. You know, this is America. Of course, everyone will be well. Adam it's a public park. It will be America's first landscaped public park. And so people really kinda got on board with this in by eighteen though that was kind of ally it was at least at first, but by eighteen fifty three I believe work started. There was a central park that had been designated land been designated for the central park by then right, right? And they had a contest a believe it was the first design contest in the country. A lot of firsts that said designer park. You gotta have a parade ground. Gotta principal fountain. Right. Gotta have a lookout tower got a skating arena. Sure got four cross streets K because people still gotta get through there somehow and in a palace. I'm sorry place for or Palestine not for an exhibition or a concert hall. Right. Very specific rules for this design contest. That. That was won by two gentlemen. Very famous now gentleman named Frederick law own stead and Calvert Vaux, I'm gonna VO. Okay. B U X. Yeah. Vow Vour VO, but definitely not vox vow. Always silent. Yeah. Those two submitted something called the greensward plan, and they won like that name and they won for a couple of reasons. One. Frederick law own stead was the superintendent of central park at the time probably didn't hurt. No. But he wasn't a shoe. And I believe his boss. I can't remember what position is boss would have had his boss submitted a plan to apparently, he invo they're playing this greens were plan that they submitted was just so obviously head and shoulders above every other design that was submitted that it was just clear like from the outset. Yes. These guys should win. And it was considered a a a work of art still to this day. Although they actually went onto design prospect park in Brooklyn lovely that's supposedly they're masterpiece over central park is prospect park. I mean, I love them both. Yeah. They're both great. I've never been to either of them. That's not true. No. I swear to God. I've never I park with you before. But I mean what? So okay, I walked like fifteen paces in central park. Right. It was just like we weren't in there for. Along right. That's that's really the only. Yes, I've never been in prospect park. Boy, I have explored. There's so much of it. But I bet you I've explored seventy five percent of the bottom fifty percent of central park. Well, I haven't been over like eighty sixth street a lot north of that. But that's where it gets a little more wild anyway. And that wild like the parties. But a little more little more wild as far as the design goes. Well, they're purposely. Yes, right. Okay. I'm glad you said perfectly because supposedly the bottom half of central park. So the part of the park itself has meant to vote New York state the bottom ham is much more urban refined trimmed I dunno. Sure. And it's been to reflect New York City, then as you get further up in the park. It's a little more wild. There's parties and coyotes all you know, poughkeepsie you've never been to Bethesda fountain. I don't believe I have I've seen ever been old house. Gating rink so many episodes of order I can't distinguish reality from fantasy. Oh, man. I'm like, I'm going into my memory..

"They would call a bad names of just whatever I see. So who knows no one knows for sure where Seneca village came from the name at least go to was interesting. So sounds like Seneca villages. Great. It was it must have had fortune smiling on it throughout it's time. Right. Not true now. So setting village was in the way of the proposed park. Right. So let's get we'll just go ahead and cut to the chase here. Seneca village was they had to move which is sad because the community ended then when the when the state and the city moved in and said, this is this a city Leonel. You guys will have to move here. Some money for your land the community broke up. It didn't resettle a reform elsewhere. It was like ephemeral like that ephemeral New York site. It was it lasted for a few decades. Yeah. He knows peaceful and harmonious, and then it was gone because they had to move to make way for central park. Yeah. It took a couple of years of fighting the law. But eventually the law one out, and it was a this called in this article a violent clearing of Seneca village, like basically sent cops in there with their batons and like physically removed two people. Yeah. And there was a a big kind of media blitz in favor of moving everybody out. They were you know, derided as a shanty town of squatters and stuff like that. Yeah. Despite the fact that most of the people who live there are a lot of people who live their own their land in their houses and head for decades. Then they were they had just as much right to be there as anybody else, but the popular opinion of the public at the time was they were just squatting, and they should be forced to move. And it was totally justifiable that come in with police baton to clear them off the land in two thousand eleven that sort of weird silver lining is the institute for the exploration of Seneca village history. Got permission after ten years of trying. The central park conservancy to excavate a couple of sites in the village. And they went in there and excavated excavated two different homesites in on one. They found some artifacts. But it was clear that it had been already buried under central park. Whatever we've been built central park. Right. They they'd already dug it up when they did. Yeah. Yeah. The other one though was original. And they found the original soil of Seneca village at the former yard of Nancy more. Yeah. For t- neat, and they have two hundred and fifty bags of material to analyze now and soil samples and some artifacts to see what life was really like back, then so pretty cool. So they better get to it. That's right. I want we take a break. And then come back and talk about the puck K. Is it in Boston New? Yeah. What happened there?.

Jerry, Jerry, one because I was like I'm time for this any longer. That's pretty funny because this just sort of all the three of us. You guys are having staredown over nothing. You just over there. Grumpy like, KOMO gluco. I was just doing my saying. And then all I heard from you as nice job, Jerry. So like, you could see it share you gave it to her. I mean, Jerry one my friend, Billy the one who passed away from MS s that I talked about he and I used to do staring contest. But it was a certain face. We had to make okay, and you had to not laugh that was our steering contract. So we both make the certain face that he invented in the first one was to break in laugh, which was always me. Can you can I see the face? No, okay. That's fine. I've retired. I understand. Okay. Well, thanks for the story. Oh, by the way, very special listener mail coming up today everyone stick around for that. Whoa. Sarah, the amazing eleven-year-old fan. Eleven and he's reappeared everybody gosh, so delightful to hear from her. All right. So well, let's just get through this then central park central park. It's huge In New New York. York. It square. It's Rick Tanggula, Charles. All right. So let's talk about New York in. Between eighteen twenty one and eighteen fifty five. All right. The population of New York grew four times its size over that thirty four year period from fifteen people to sixty and they were crowded and people started moving further and further north like I like that was a funny joke. I just made. But you just said that the population of New York quadrupled over thirty years now thirty four years, and, you know, New York started at the south as far as people living there and kept going further and further north and Manhattan wise shirt to New York state come on. No, nobody Brooklyn to and poughkeepsie. No, no, sure. All the boroughs, the we're talking about the island of Manhattan, right? And things got so crowded that people would gather in scimitar Aries to socialize. Yeah. Those really weird. So we've talked about that before we like, I don't remember what episode was, but we saw this stuff. It might be ways or something park pizza. It might have been tombstones or something because we talked about cemeteries being designed to be park like because people will go have picnics and some men and be so all the material that has to do with central park makes it sound like that's all they had available where cemeteries if they wanted to go hang out and have picnics and Greenspace. Yeah. It was involuntary. Or if it was designed that way, you're both. But yeah, they it was either a a tenement or a commercial district or the cemetery. That was what you had if you were outdoors. Yeah. And I think I think it's not in silly. That's all you had. But like, maybe all you had that was close in accessible, sure. Like the cemetery is, you know, six blocks from my apartment, right? And also as you will learn much of. Mm not northern Manhattan. But yeah. Counting northern Manhattan, central Manhattan. Right. Where central park now is was gross swampland swampy rocky. You're not you're hanging out there. Anyway. Yeah. Forget the eighteen twenties. Let's go back to point six million years ago. Chuck, oh, there was an ice sheet over New York state that was two miles thick and it just so happened to terminate the termination edge the bowl the edge of it. Sure. Light went right through the bottom of Manhattan went through Brooklyn. And actually like all the heights and hills in in Brooklyn, that's because a that's actual hills right because glacier, pushed the ground up there. Because that's where it stopped growing forward. But as the glaciers were moving down south from the north they were pushing boulders and rocks and stones everywhere, and where they ended up and then finally retreated from they left all that stuff. We why they're bold. Others in central park. There used to be a lot more boulders. They're so much. So that the lane was just basically considered virtually unusable. Yeah. They weren't that area was not being developed anyway, which may it made it a a difficult task..
