Department website, 28 July 2015: ”At the Parks Department
headquarters in the Arsenal, an enormous park design and construction team
assembled. Architect Aymar Embury II and landscape architect Gilmore
D. Clarke were among the 1,800 designers and engineers drawing up plans for
the expansion, rehabilitation and modernization of New York's parks. An
additional 3,900 construction supervisors oversaw the work of an army of
Parks Department relief workers — 70,000 strong in 1934 — all
paid by the federal government.”
