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.
