“These sultry nights there is no more refreshing place to go than Central Park Garden. The cool breezes playing through the grounds and hall, the fountains, the cooling refreshments, and, to cap all, the superb music by Theo. Thomas’ grand orchestra, all conduce to make the place immensely attractive to our overheated citizens, who flock there nightly by thousands.”
