Aymar Embury II Gallery of NYC New Deal Projects - Photo #102 - Staten Island Zoo - Richmond

See Staten Island Zoo gallery

The Staten Island Zoo, also known as the Barrett Park Zoo, was built by the NYC Parks Department 1934-36 with some combination and FERA, CCC, CWA, WPA, and PWA labor and/or funds[1]. The designer was the Parks Department's chief architect, Aymar Embury II, as shown in Public Design Commission of the City of New York documents shown in the next images. The Zoo's murals were created by WPA Federal Art Project artist Olive Earl (1888-1982)[1]; one of them are shown below; see more of them here.

  1. Staten Island Zoo, on this website, contains sources and references for its New Deal creation; in this website we only aim to show that Aymar Embury was the architect.
