May 23, 1941; caption: "Highbridge Park, Manhattan: WPA workers
standing by newly installed park benches." This demonstrates that besides
the WPA's more obvious creations (pool, play center, playgrounds, and ball
fields), it contributed to the general infrastructure: benches, paths,
lighting, drainage, landscaping, trees, and plants, as can be seen by
comparing the January 1934 image
of the park with
some of the modern views that follow.
