Was Central Park established when NYC was founded, or was it the result of later restoration efforts?

    The competition to design the park was announced in 1857, long after New York was founded. Prior to the pastoral movement, the city was very cramped and there was little public green space for people to escape the bustle of city life. Central Park was set aside to rememedy this situation.
