Happy Birthday William Cullen Bryant!

Mr. Bryant's distinguished literary career was marked by volumes of romantic poetry and his tenure as a journalist and editor at the New York Evening Post. Reservoir Square was renamed in 1884 to honor Mr. Bryant posthumously, around the time that the CarrĂ©re and Hastings plan for the New York Public Library was commissioned by the city. Bryant was also a leading force in the plans to create Central Park, so it is only fitting that this New Yorker ended up with a park and a library in his name.

Hope he likes his mums.
