Story behind Collyer Brothers Park
The smallest park I have explored to date is named after the Collyer Brothers – and the dark, disturbing story of their demise. The park itself is located in Central Harlem on the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 128th Street, and is sometimes locked even when it should be open to the public.
