Wouldn’t you know that if I spent the day wandering in Central Park, I would find a ruin? Well, it’s not a crumbly ruin, but, still, it’s an abandoned building. Locked away and secured. And so: essentially a ruin.
Of what?—you ask (if I’m lucky)….
A fort once stood in what is now the park. I had no idea.
This ruin dates to the War of 1812, and was remodeled later.
Extra credit: what were the “sides” in the War of 1812? What was the dispute?
