Byline: James Gardner When Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux set about designing Central Park, they never imagined that the day would come when it would be fringed with such tall buildings. At a time when elevators had barely been invented and their implications for building heights were still unknown, Olmsted and Vaux had every reason to believe that, except for the occasional church spire, nothing higher than six stories would ever disturb the bucolic illusion they had so studiously contrived.
