In the heart of Harlem, in New York City, at the northwest corner of 128th Street and 5th Avenue, lies a small rectangular lot. A sign from the NYC Parks Department attached to the perimeter fence identifies the nearly empty lot as the “Collyer Brothers Park”. It is one of New York City’s smallest parks with a couple of benches, a few potted plants and a number of trees for providing shade. New York City has dozens of such ‘pocket parks’ scattered throughout the city, so this is nothing unusual. What’s unusual is the story of the brothers after which the park is named.
