        Andrew Haswell Green, b. Worcester, Mass. 1820, d. New York City 1903. Known as "The Father of Greater
     New York," Green worked for 5 decades (1843-1898) towards the betterment of the City of New York and its
     citizens. His achievements in bringing together the 5 burroughs which now comprise New York City was one of
     his many improvements. Mr. Green can be credited with his vision of a city for such an enormous and diverse
     population. (The "world's second city," behind London in 1898) began unfolding during his lifetime. In 1869
     he headed the Central Park Commission and helped to create a cultural center which under Mr. Green includ-
     ed the creation of The American Museum of Natural History, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The
     Bronx Zoo. As City Comptroller, Mr. Green's intelligence and persistence guided the financial hand of the city
     away from the corrupt "Boss" Thomas Tweed Ring, which had nearly bankrupted the city before being exposed
     in 1871. Early this year the City of New York decided to acknowledge ledgendary Andrew H. Green and his
     achievements by dedicating 1½ acres of land and 4½ million dollars to build a park in his memory.
