Map of Columbus Circle/Central Park South (1916)

Map of Columbus Circle and Central Park South. This 1916 map includes a view of the Central Park Riding Academy, on which 200 Central Park South was later built.

In 1891, the large building was converted to become the Central Park Riding Academy, in which New Yorkers could learn - within the city - proper horse riding and polo. Musical symbols wrought on the iron gates gave tribute to the theater that once stood there.

On October 10, 1893, a cigarette was tossed into a pile of hay, resulting in a fire that caused a stampede of some 200 horses. Some fled to the nearby Central Park, while others gave chase for blocks southward. One horse, Laperello, perished in the flames. About $2,000 worth of damage was done to the building.
  • Matting & Framing Options

    You can customize your print's presentation from a wide selection of frames and mats: modern or classic - all timeless. See the options here.

    Our most popular style is Modern Black - Thin frame, coupled a White Mat with Black Core. The Modern White frames will match any style and are perfect for gifts. Looking for something with more bang? The gold and silver frames may be what you want. See examples here.

    Mats are not offered with Gallery frames at the moment (but look great without them!).

  • Frame Sizes

    All frames are custom cut and sized to match the dimensions of the image. Your final, framed print might not exactly match the dimensions listed in the Frame Size dropdown menu. 

    The maximum dimensions of each frame size are:

    • Accent: Up to 9" x 12" 
    • Spotlight: Up to 16" x 20"
    • Centerpiece: Up to 34" x 36"
    • Gallery: Up to 32" x 40"
  • Shipping & Delivery

    Shipping is always free!

    Prints will be scanned at the archives, and retouched by our artists to make them pixel-perfect. They will then be reprinted, trimmed, matted and framed to fit their custom sizes.

    You should expect the final, framed print in 4-6 weeks. Because each print is custom researched, retouched, and framed, all sales are final.
