NYC Central Park Attractions: The Central Park Arsenal
Every year, locals and tourists alike enjoy the unique attractions in New York City’s Central Park using our guided bike tours and bike rentals. One of these Central Park attractions that is well-loved among visitors is the Central Park Arsenal. As one of the oldest buildings in the area, only predated by the Blockhouse (1814), the arsenal in Central Park was originally built between 1847 and 1851 to store munitions for New York state’s National Guard. Since then, the structure has served many uses, such as a weather bureau, a police precinct, and the first iteration of the American Museum of Natural History!
What Is the Central Park Arsenal?
Today, it houses the Department of Parks and Recreation headquarters for the city of New York. It is also home to the Central Park Zoo. Also found here is the Arsenal Gallery, Central Park’s collection of unique fine art and photography. The gallery includes between eight and 10 exhibits largely focused on urban issues, the natural environment, and history. Furthermore, historic murals and original architectural designs are found within the building, contributing to an academic and artistic exposure for visitors of all walks of life.
