This park began as a 'potter's field' - a burial ground for the penniless - and its status as a cemetery protected it from development. It is now an incredibly well-used park, especially on the weekend. Children use the playground, NYU students catch some rays and friends meet 'under the arch, ' the recently renovated landmark on the park's northern edge, designed in 1889 by society architect Stanford White. A controversial $16-million renovation plan that some residents feared would reduce the informality and character of the park has meant more symmetry, landscaping and higher fences. The undersized basketball court, the Cage , considered one of the more competitive playgrounds in the city, draws onlookers and top ballers - the more people-watching, the more showboating.
