ABSTRACT
The article expresses the author's views on the alleged impracticality of the Central Park in New York City. According to the author, the Central Park has been reserved for noncommercial and for certain produces no revenue. The author proposes an immediate abolition of the Department of Parks and Recreation and suggests the establishment of a People's Acreage Zoning Commission in order to best serve the most practical needs of the city.
