last office in New York City
The Blockhouse is the oldest building in Central Park, dating back to the War of 1812 when it was built to fend off the British should they try and invade Manhattan from the northeast. My last job in the city was working for the Central Park Conservancy helping maintain and improve the North Woods of Central Park, and I tell ya, what an office it was! It has been such a treat to be part of such a piece of New York history as Central Park. For the full info sheet on the Blockhouse check out this Parks & Rec link. And if you love the park don't hesitate to support the folks who keep it so awesome, the Central Park Conservancy.
